The Climate Change and Health Collaborative (C2HC) is a collaborative group of researchers, clinicians, and public health professionals who are passionate about reducing the effect of climate change on health, specifically among vulnerable populations.
As the climate crisis continues to worsen, identifying different sensitivities across vulnerable groups is imperative to reduce the disparities in illness and death. Currently, there is limited Canadian research that focuses on climate change-related health inequalities. In particular, the findings generated by C2HC will provide policy-relevant information on how vulnerabilities vary across and within urban centres across Canada. We will use our research to inform local hospital, community-practice, and public health programs and policies, and in turn improve the quality of life of those living in urban areas.
