Australia's Climate and Health Alliance celebrates its 10th birthday

Australia's Climate and Health Alliance celebrates its 10th birthday

The Melbourne-based, national climate organization, the Climate and Health Alliance (CAHA) is a decade old.
A former nurse, who re-trained to become a reporter, Fiona Armstrong (pictured), sensed an urgent need for an organization that put climate and health together and so founded what has become known colloquially as "CAHA".
In this episode, she talks about her idea grew from being totally volunteer-based to now having the equivalent of about four full-time staff and an influence that stretches across the country, along with having positive and active links with similar organizations around the world.
CAHA is now the prime body news outlets turn to when seeking comment about health and the climate crisis.
