Australasian Epidemiological Australia
Represented by Ying Zhang, Treasurer
How does your organisation address climate change?
Australasian Epidemiological Australia is a group of epidemiologists in Australia and New Zealand who are keen to promote epidemiological research and its translation into policies and practice. AEA is a member of Climate and Health Alliance. We recognised climate change is an epidemiological issue and a great global health threat that needs epidemiological experts to protect people's health. AEA has sent members to the Climate and Health in Canberra to advocate on climate change and health policies. Council members have been involved in the development of Better, Healthier Futures: Climate and Health Report and Roundtable.
What is your organisation doing to create a better future?
AEA will continue to contribute to addressing climate change and health issues through an epidemiological perspective and advocate for changes in policies and practices to protect people's health from climate change.
