view in conference program

The El Niño and Health session will improve the atmospheric and health sciences communities’ understanding of the ways in which health outcomes (e.g. vector/waterborne diseases; heat related illness; physical and mental injury) respond to the full El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) cycle, including La Nina. Knowledge generated by the session will contribute to building increased resilience in health systems to future El Niño/La Nina events. Core Science Keynote to be given by Glenn McGregor and John Paul Chretien 


(Joint between the Eighth Conference on Environment and Health; and the 29th Conference on Climate Variability and Change )
