Health-Earth (H-Earth)

H-Eearth logo

H–earth is an international and interdisciplinary network of institutions and individuals which aims to build knowledge about global change and health and develop capacity for effective responses by policymakers, practitioners and communities thereby ensuring long-term population health. Recognising, assessing, forewarning, minimising and adapting to the risks brought by global ecological and social change is vital if global population health is to be improved and to endure. The teaching of this material in schools and universities, at all levels, and to all health workers (i.e. beyond public health) is an important H-earth goal. Understanding the adverse health consequences of unchecked adverse global environmental change is also important for many other disciplines, professions, policy makers and people of all faiths. H-earth has five major research themes:

  • Poverty
  • Climate Change
  • Infectious Disease
  • Ecosystem disruptions
  • Security
  • Transformation
