Webinar on Climate Change and Health: What Medical Students and Health Professionals Need to Know

Climate variability and change affect temperature and precipitation patterns as well as air quality, which affect health through altering exposures. To share the underlying linkages of climate and weather with health, Understanding Climate and Health Associations in India (UCHAI) initiative is organizing a webinar. The webinar is particularly designed for medical students and health professionals. The International frameworks that govern some of the national initiatives on climate change and health would also be part of the discussions.
