Public Health, Bioethics and Policy: Protecting Our Health and Environment (pp. 535-540) $45.00
Authors:  Cheryl C. Macpherson
Bioethics illuminates considerations that bear on health and
healthcare. From a bioethical perspective this paper reviews
some of the most credible medical literature on health
impacts of climate change, highlights concerns regarding
rural children, and provides perspective on public health
responses and policy. Climate change has reciprocal and
interconnected effects on humans and ecosystems. Global
population growth elevates energy use, landfill and toxic
waste, and animal consumption with dynamic and
interactive contributions to climate change, food insecurity,
morbidity, and mortality. The most pronounced harms
threaten not only health but child growth and development
with individual and societal costs. Rural populations are
more directly exposed to their environments than others and
have limited access to resources. Rural children may
therefore have less opportunity to learn skills central to
protecting their health, environment, and future. Immediate
and concerted responses grounded in public health evidence
can mitigate climate change and its health impacts. Public
health is essential in generating data, policy, and effective
responses to climate-related concerns. Regional data on
disease and risk factors should engage social marketing and
drive policy and behavior change. Public health and
bioethics have central roles in framing public opinion and
generating political will to reform policy and practices in
healthcare, agriculture, and other sectors that contribute to
climate change.
