Public health, Global Health and Health Policy. Taster class on climate change
Professor Ollie Jay will highlight the growing impact of climate change on human health. We will explore how we are experiencing prolonged droughts, cyclones, floods, bushfires and extreme heat events which have significantly increased deaths, injuries, infectious diseases and mental illness in Australia and South Asia. The most vulnerable in our populations – the elderly, poor, and people with co-morbidities such as cardiovascular disease – are most likely to suffer from extreme heat.

This class will be drawn from units available to students in the Master of Health Policy, Master of Public Health and Master of Global Health. After the class you will have an opportunity to hear more about these programs and how our graduates are helping address the undeniable increase in frequency, intensity, and duration of heatwaves in Australia and South Asian countries.
