Overview

This Climate Change and Planetary Health programme from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine  will suit practitioners, policy-makers or researchers who wish to deepen their understanding of humanitarian issues and increase their potential for career development in public health. It is aimed at professionals who may already be involved in delivering public health projects in humanitarian crises at community, hospital or district level, in research, in ministries of health or other health- or development-related organisations.

The programme will enable you to:

  • apply the concepts of planetary health, global environmental change and sustainable development to inform and advocate for a planetary health perspective in global public health.
  • assess key pathways and indicators by which changes to global environmental systems affect human health, including (but not limited to) heat stress, food systems, air pollution, infectious disease and biodiversity loss. 
  • critically appraise tools and methods available from disciplines including epidemiology, biostatistics, social and behavioural sciences, and data science, and assess their strengths and limitations for different planetary health research problems
  • design and manage research projects in the fields of climate change and planetary health by using and combining tools from across disciplines
  • evaluate the implications of planetary health research for health policy and practice in different country and population contexts
  • assemble and communicate results of complex systems analyses in language appropriate for specialist and non-specialist audiences.
