The Lancet Countdown works to ensure that health is at the centre of how governments understand and respond to climate change. Our work ranges from ensuring policymakers have access to high-quality evidence-based guidance, through to providing the health profession with the tools they need to improve public health.

The Lancet Countdown: Health and Climate Change in Asia is a regional centre of the global Lancet Countdown, based in Tsinghua University, Beijing. The centre is launching in December 2020 and brings together academic institutions to track how climate change is affecting health across the continent, how countries are responding, and the health benefits of an accelerated response.
