Establish a Centre for Climate and Human Health
Climate change is a public health issue, making existing diseases / conditions worse, and has the potential to introduce new pathogens into our communities. It disproportionately affects vulnerable populations, and puts pressure on health care infrastructure. Such a Centre would cross disciplines, include PHC's populations of emphasis, and reflect its vision and values. SPH/PHC has been a leader in research and care, and a policy influencer, for health crises from HIV/AIDS to the Opioid Crisis; let's do the same for the human health impacts of climate change.
