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:

  1. Review the state of the knowledge of the influence of climate on infectious diseases and non-communicable diseases, especially heat related illnesses;
  2. 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.
