Health and Climate Change


As the climate continues to change across the globe, there are direct health implications, such as illnesses and fatalities associated with heatwaves.  What should the health policy response be to changes in climate, and how do we build this into our plans for a low carbon future?

To explore these issues, the Foundation for Science and Technology held an evening discussion event on 13 July 2022.  The speakers were: Professor Sir Chris Whitty, Chief Medical Officer for England; Professor Mike Tipton, Professor of Human and Applied Physiology, University of Portsmouth; and Dr Modi Mwatsama, Head of Climate Interventions, Climate and Health, The Wellcome Trust.

A video recording, presentation slides and speaker audio from the event are available on the FST website at:
