Event details

Did you know that the health sector is responsible for up to five per cent of global net CO2 emissions? Matthew Taylor, Director of York Health Economics Consortium, explains how global decision makers must deal with the challenge of trading off the benefits of healthcare against the harms.

Join Matthew for an overview of current methods for measuring the environmental harm caused by medicines and for a discussion around the public’s willingness to trade off their own health in order to save the planet.
