Chapman on Climate and Health in Africa
About The Event
The overarching goal of the conference is to take advantage of advances in weather and climate forecasting and in climate-informed disease modeling, early warning, and predictions to enable decision support services in human health.
The objectives are to:
- Review the state of the knowledge of the influence of climate on infectious diseases and non-communicable diseases, especially heat related illnesses;
- Stimulate discussion between researchers, practitioners, and policy makers to advance climate-based health early warning; (3) to work collaboratively with program managers and decision makers on identifying best approaches to enable the use of climate information to reduce disease risk and benefit the public health.
