IIHMR University course now available in an e-textbook format

News

Future Health Systems is a research consortium working to improve access, affordability and quality of health services for the poor. We are a partnership of leading research institutes from across the globe working in a variety of contexts: in low-income countries (Bangladesh, Uganda), middle-income countries (China, India) and fragile states (Afghanistan) to build resilient health systems for the future. After a successful first five-year phase from 2006-2011 (see our success stories), we are entering a new six-year phase of research, funded mainly by UK aid.

IIHMR University course now available in an e-textbook format

Future Health Systems

The Indian Institute of Health Management Research (IIHMR) University's course on "Climate Change , Society and Health", has now been converted into an e-textbook and it is now available on the ARCADE website.

This work has been done through the ARCADE project, with significant contributions from Fututre Health Systems (FHS) colleague, Upasona Ghosh, along with Professor Kanjailal.

About this course:

This is an interdisciplinary course designed for young health researchers to help them gain a basic understanding of the role and impact of climate change and variability on health through the lens of a SDH (Social Determinants of Health) framework.

The central purpose of the course is to provide guidance to the young health researchers on:

  1. various techniques for assessing the epidemiological impact of climate change and consequent burden of climate-induced diseases, and

  2. various quantitative and qualitative approaches to understand and explain society’s response to climate change especially in the context of maintaining and restoring people’s health.

The concepts and techniques discussed are linked and made relevant to the areas in low-and-middle income countries that are particularly vulnerable to climate shocks.
