Data for Impact: Winter 2023

Calling all CanWaCH members and partners: Take part in our Data Drive!

The current climate crisis is expected to exacerbate pre-existing development and emergency challenges, impacting health outcomes from malnutrition, malaria, diarrhea and heat stress. However, there is a gap in data to support research and learning that address evidence gaps around climate change. CanWaCH is collecting data on climate conscious global health initiatives, particularly those that focus on the intersections between climate, environment and health. To share your climate related projects, fill this form and email it to Imaeyen Okon at [email protected]

We also invite updates on your new and existing health related projects. Your data is essential and contributes to telling a more complete story on achievements, outcomes and gaps in global health efforts.
