NIH Wide Climate Change and Health Webinar Series - 6/22/2022
“Climate Change and Health: Generating Research Evidence for Action”

Welcome by Roger Glass, M.D., Ph.D., FIC Director

Speaker: Andy Haines, M.B., B.S., M.D., Centre on Climate Change and Planetary Health, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine

Abstract: Climate change threatens health through a range of pathways including the effects of heat and extreme events, increased air pollution, changes in infectious disease transmission, undernutrition, increasing poverty and population displacement, but there are still important gaps in our understanding of the impacts. The development and implementation of effective adaptation and mitigation strategies are essential to reduce the risks to health. The presentation will give an overview of the research challenges and opportunities for generating evidence for effective action.
