Responding to the Climate Change and Health Crisis: A Framework for Academic Public Health
October 26, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
The Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health (ASPPH) will host a framework launch webinar on Responding to the Climate Change and Health Crisis from 2:00 – 3:00 PM ET on Wednesday, October 26, featuring an expert panel that will discuss some of the challenges and opportunities it identifies.
The framework examines climate change and health in four primary domains – Education and Training, Research, Practice, and Policy and Advocacy – and considers three cross-cutting themes: Environmental Justice, Social Justice, and Health Equity; Interprofessional and Interdisciplinary Collaborations; and Partnerships for Impact. The framework concludes with a set of evidence-based principles and recommendations – for both schools and programs of public health (SPPH) and ASPPH as a whole – to take collective action and work with vested partners to reduce the impacts of climate change on population health.
The framework was developed by the ASPPH Task Force on Climate Change and Health, comprised of experts in a range of climate change and health-related topics from across our member schools and programs, with feedback from members and partners. In conjunction, we are also releasing ASPPH’s statement of commitment to addressing climate change and health.
