Glasgow conference

PODCAST - The chief executive officer of Omeo District Health, Associate Professor, Arish Naresh, will tonight deliver a keynote address to the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Glasgow, COP26.

Dr Naresh’s topic ‘Can’t be Business as Usual, Won’t be Business as Usual’ is a discussion about the waste in health with the emphasis on reducing the amount of reusable products in the field.

Dr Naresh will Zoom into the conference from the High Country, just before midnight, to give his address to the Glasgow conference.

“Health care is a major polluter, in many ways, because we use so many disposable items,” Dr Naresh says.

“The pandemic has required us to use more PPE and more rubber/plastic-based products than ever before.”
