A recent systematic review found that more than half of known infectious diseases will be aggravated by climate hazards, the majority of which are vector and water borne. Although genomic surveillance has become critical in many parts of the world, very little is known about the genetic diversity of vector and water borne pathogens. In addition, ecological and epidemiological mapping of pathogens aggravated by climate is needed to identify and control outbreaks before they become epidemics and epidemics before they become pandemics.
CLIMADE is a consortium that brings together partners around the globe that have long term experience working with climate amplified epidemics and pathogens’ genomics. Partners include public health agencies, academic organizations, and the industry. They develop tools to predict, track and control diseases and epidemics in the most affected countries in the world and use this data to prevent new epidemics and pandemics that can be amplified by climate change.
Learning Objectives
  • Discuss the impact that climate hazards can have on infectious diseases and the importance of identifying, tracking, and controlling outbreaks created by these climate hazards.
  • Realize how climate hazards can potentially impact infectious disease outbreaks in your community
  • Recognize opportunities to prepare for potential outbreaks in your community as a result of infectious diseases that can be aggravated by climate hazards
Webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing after live event.
