Considerations of health have received little notice in international climate change negotiations and agreements. To address this issue, the nexus between climate change and health in global politics should be strengthened. I argue that this can be accomplished by: (1) adopting a strategy based on the securitization of the relationship between health and climate change by using a human security framework and (2) that prospective norm entrepreneurs must take advantage of the fact that climate change is part of a regime complex, rather than a comprehensive regime, and use their tools of soft power to persuasively advance stronger measures.
