PDF version

Description

The establishment of ‘climate & health’ awareness, training, database and research programs amongst the wider community through health and medical specialists will enable Samoa to strengthen its early response rate to any outbreak of diseases relating to changes in climate.The establishment of partnerships between meteorology and health specialists will in turn improve the well-being and livelihood of communities by setting up an early-warning surveillance system program that will enable communities to adapt to potential outbreaks of diseases. This partnership will improve the awareness and capacity building of health and medical specialists on global environmental issues and the use of climate-forecast information through a networked database sharing information mainly between the two stakeholders with access by all stakeholders as well.Samoa will improve the quality of health care services by providing affordable and sustainable health technology that will enable early response and treatment of the communities and public at large to injuries and or illnesses sustained due to relative impacts of climate change and climate variability.
