You are invited to join us on Monday 25 October from 14.00-14.45 CEST, to launch the ASPHER Climate and Health Competencies for Public Health Professionals in Europe. This list will support public health schools to implement education and training for public health professionals to understand the basics, be able to communicate knowledgeably, and form partnerships and alliances in multidisciplinary settings with experts in the area of climate and health.
Good training is vital in our efforts to educate new generations of public health professionals who will improve and protect the health of the people we serve, and the health of our environment and planet. It is essential for us to define and continually update the skills and competencies needed for this life saving work. The launch of ASPHER Climate and Health Competencies for Public Health Professionals in Europe builds on previous lists of competencies, specifically from the Global Consortium on Climate Change and Health and the WHO-ASPHER Framework for the Public Health Workforce in the European Region.
