DESCRIPTION


This course will be delivered by experts at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine working at the interface of climate prediction science and disease risk forecasting, based between the Centre for Mathematical Modelling of Infectious Diseases and the Centre on Climate Change and Planetary Health. Guest lecturers include Dr Diarmid Campbell-Lendrum (WHO), Dr Madeleine Thomson (Wellcome Trust), Prof Sir Andy Haines (LSHTM) and Prof Antonio Gasparrini (LSHTM).


Lectures and practical sessions will cover fundamentals of environmental and infectious disease interactions; climate services for health; the use of observational, model and forecast climate data at seasonal to decadal time scales; exploratory data analysis; time and space statistical modelling and Bayesian inference.


This course is relevant for PhD students, early career researchers, data managers, and public health and environment agency practitioners working on the impacts of climate on public health. See event website for details and to apply.
