About the Event

Climate change is one of the most significant global challenges of our time, with far-reaching implications for various sectors, including public health. Africa, as a continent, is particularly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change, which threaten the well-being of its populations and place additional burdens on healthcare systems. This event seeks to provide a platform for scientific discussions and insights into the complex relationship between climate change and health in the African context.

NASAC aspires to provide credible science advice and amplify the voice of science in key global conversations, a proposal was made to hold a dissemination workshop at the Science Forum South Africa (SFSA) 2023.  In line with the overall theme of SFSA, the workshop will focus on Igniting Conversations among various stakeholders on the impact of Climate Change and Health in Africa anchored on the NASAC report. The NASAC proposed event at SFSA offers a vital opportunity for networking, learning, and contributing a science voice to Africa’s critical conversation on climate change and health. The SFSA shall be a platform that brings together scientists, researchers, policymakers, and stakeholders to discuss and showcase scientific advancements, innovations with the intention of Networking for collaboration and partnerships, Knowledge Sharing and Interdisciplinary Insights and Engagement with policy
