Session #3: Adaptation of health systems to desertification and climate change


Health systems around the world are already suffering from desertification and climate change effects on health. These effects are especially apparent in low income countries, including in Africa. Desertification and climate changes are also contributing to political and socio-economic instability, and climate-exacerbated migration is expected to increase. In this panel, we are going to discuss how health systems should adapt to the growing effects of desertification and climate change, especially in low income countries.
