The Swiss School of Public Health (SSPH+) Summer School in Public Health Policy, Economics, and Management will take place fully online and we have a rich program of 1-3 day courses, plus 2 freely accessible plenary lectures each day at 9:00-10:00 and 17:00-18:00.
Our novel course "Is Breathing killing us? Tackling Air Pollution using science for policies to protect health" will conveniently take place on Zoom August 24, 25, and 26 (Mon. to Wed.) from 13:00-15:00 (CEST).
Ambient air pollution is a leading cause of morbidities and premature death. The course provides basic insights into the measurement, modeling and monitoring of exposure to air pollution, its health effects and the overall impact and costs for public health. Clean air policy solutions will be introduced with success stories, “low hanging fruits” and global challenges for the implementation of these policies. Participants will explore global examples of policy approaches and strengths and limitations in their own countries. Study groups will draft strategies to adopt at least one clean air policy.
Several experts agreed to contribute to this interactive course, including representatives of WHO and the Federal Office of the Environment. Nino Kuenzli’s plenary lecture "Air pollution and COVID-19" on Wed 9:00h will be part of the course.
The course fee is CHF 300 but full-coverage SSPH+ scholarships are available. Instructions for applying for the scholarships are on the 2nd page of the course flyer or online.
