Tony McMichael, an Australian long-time colleague and collaborator of Haines who also saw the importance of climate change early on, sums up well the sort of person he is: With Andy Haines you get a great trifecta: a clinician with on-ground experience of the NHS and public-health policy issues; an academic with excellent skill in undertaking research that tackles big questions; and a leader who has a well informed commitment and passion for improving the world, its environment, and the way in which we live.
