Climate Change and Health Working Group

The Working Group on Climate Change and Health (WGCCH) was launched in early 2018 in response to the pressing need to address the challenges at the intersection of health and climate change.

The overarching goal of the working group is to bring together CAGH members with a strong interest and expertise in climate change and health. These members work together to sensitize global health researchers, practitioners, and decision-makers to the impacts of climate change on human health.

We are actively seeking new members!

If you are passionate about climate change and health, please join us. New member applications are reviewed during our monthly meetings. You can find out more about our group’s key activities, membership criteria and application process in our terms of reference.
