Climate and Health Institute
At the intersection of climate change, human health and equity.
From extreme drought to longer wildfire and pollen seasons, climate change is having a profound impact on human health. In addition, the health burden caused by climate change and its drivers is disproportionate, with some populations more at risk of respiratory and heat-related illnesses, water and food insecurity, disease, forced migration and other consequences of planetary neglect. GW’s Climate & Health Institute seeks new solutions to global health and equity challenges associated with climate change and is addressing those challenges through cross-disciplinary research, training and action.
