Climate change is affecting health outcomes globally and is disproportionally impacting the countries that can least afford it.

As climate change effects take hold, the health needs of populations are becoming more complex, systems are being stretched and hard-fought gains in health system improvements are being eroded.

With these links well established, the humanitarian sector must plan for future climate challenges. By looking to actions in health care and leadership globally, and connecting humanitarian practitioners to leading edge research, we can better understand:

  • What the sector can do to lead and advocate for climate action
  • How humanitarian health systems can be strengthened to meet climate change demands
  • What climate change means for health and the provision of essential health care across vulnerable countries in the Indo- Asia-Pacific region
  • How to fast track innovations in the health sector to the frontlines of humanitarian response

This symposium will bring together experts in health delivery, policy and research. The event will have a specific focus on the Indo-Pacific region and working toward tangible actions that can be taken now to strengthen climate and humanitarian health futures.
