Half day Satellite Session of the 2018 Consortium of Universities for Global Health's Annual Conference. Epidemics, like weather and climate, do not respect national borders. Since 2005 there has been increasing international cooperation on global health security. The Lancet Commission “Count Down on Health and Climate Change” Oct 2017 proposed access to climate services as a key indicator of adaptation and resilience to climate change for the health sector. As many health outcomes are climate sensitive there is increasing interest in integrating knowledge and information on climate variability and change into the operational activities for the control of infectious diseases, public health outcomes of disasters and nutrition. This satellite session will explore the intersection of climate variability and change and health priorities for vulnerable populations around the globe.
