Climate Change, Society and Health
This is an interdisciplinary course designed for young health
researchers to help them gain a basic understanding of the
role and impact of climate change and variability on health
through the lens of a SDH (Social Determinants of Health)
About this course
The central purpose of the course is to provide guidance to the young health researchers on:
(a) various techniques for assessing the epidemiological impact of climate change and consequent burden of climate-induced diseases, and
(b) various quantitative and qualitative approaches to understand and explain society’s response to climate change especially in the context of maintaining and restoring people’s health.
The concepts and techniques discussed are linked and made relevant to the areas in low-and-middle income countries that are particularly vulnerable to climate shocks.
