Can't Take the Heat
A CHANCE meeting
Show Notes

Do you remember a moment when you got a chance to make significant progress or change happen? That is the goal of a new network, created by and for African researchers, policymakers, and practitioners to exchange knowledge and take action on climate and health issues. CHANCE stands for the Climate-Health Africa Network for Collaboration and Engagement, and it's already generating a sense of excitement. Those who attended the network's first meeting heard a first-hand account of how climate is impacting neonatal health and washing away health infrastructure, and the reasons why Africa already has great capacity to take on this challenge. Listen to hear from Didacus Namanya (Uganda Ministry of Health), Jennifer Kuhl (Global Climate and Health Alliance), Antonios Kolimenakis (WHO Africa), and Matthew Chersich (University of the Witwatersrand) on their experience at the CHANCE network meeting and where it should go next.
