Course Credit: 8 hours

While climate change is predicted to affect healthcare across the world, no two countries will suffer climatic stressors in the same way. In this section, we will explore the wide-ranging interactions between climate change and global health, focusing on direct climate impacts, impacts mediated by the natural environment, and impacts mediated through human society. Given the heterogeneity of climatic, social, political, economic, and health factors across the globe, this section is intended as a primer into global health and climate change. As you proceed, consider how local lessons may be more broadly applicable and how lessons in other practice settings and countries apply to your local context. Think about supply/demand mismatches that are accentuated by climate-related events.
