Public Health topic: Climate change and health
Submitted by birgitschauer / 7 September 2023, 08:21
Heat waves are becoming more and more frequent. The heat leads to increased physical stress, a reduction in well-being and performance, and even heat-related deaths. In a virtual event series entitled "Research cooperation in practice: making population studies useful for the public health service", employees from municipal health offices - the local public health service - discussed which topics are relevant to their work and would benefit from being processed via the JoinUs4Health platform. The aim of this topic is to better understand heat events and their impact on health. In this context, it is particularly important for the public health service at district level to be able to plan and implement measures, activities or even information campaigns at local level as efficiently and specifically as possible. Representatives of the health authorities, scientists and citizens are cordially invited to participate in this exchange!
