The WHO European Centre for Environment and Health and the International Association of National Public Health Institutes (IANPHI) organize a webinar series which address different areas of ongoing work on preventing heat outcomes through good public health practice. The year 2020 was one of the three warmest on record. This year 2021, we must also brace ourselves for a long, hot summer as the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic exacerbates the problems caused by prolonged periods of heat.
The first webinar on Time for heat-health action: Updated evidence for effective prevention will take place on Wednesday, 5 May 2021 from 10:00 – 11:30 a.m. CEST via the Zoom platform in English. The webinar will focus on:
- Climate change and heat in the region
- The latest evidence related to the effective prevention of health effects caused by heat-waves
- Country case studies on adapting existing heat‒health action plans
- The WHO/Europe campaign on #KeepCool in the heat and new video clips in support to the campaign.
