(Includes special session on the top threats to health and development in 2023: Climate change, air pollution and antimicrobial resistance)
2022 was a devastating year for global health. The year began with largest global surge in COVID-19 cases since the start of the pandemic, spurred by spread of the Omicron variant. In 2023 despite rising cases, the focus in global health needs to be beyond COVID-19.
Climate change, air pollution and antimicrobial resistance will be amongst top threats to public health and the SDGs too. But the action to address risks to human health due to deteriorating environment is not happening at the scale and urgency needed.
This is clearly seen in the data that is emerging every year. If identified, understood and visualised well, data can become an effective basis for actions to address the link between health and environment.
Data is not just numbers. It is critical for research communication, advocacy and decision-making.
So, the Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), South Asia’s leading think tank, invites you to join its Global Online Training Programme on how to use data for communicating the health crisis.
In this course, participants will learn the linkages between seemingly distinct but related concepts of health, environment and the SDGs. By the end of the course, participants will be able to analyse the data on these concepts and prepare impactful stories, dashboards and communication collaterals for different stakeholders to trigger action.
What will you learn?
Who can attend?
The self-paced online programme will have video lectures, presentations, tutorials, quizzes and assignments. Participants will also get an opportunity to work on an in-depth project of their choice. The programme will also have three live interactive sessions for meeting the trainers and fellow participants.
The programme has been designed in such a way that it can be completed along with a regular job or study.
The course is broken down into six modules:
Module 1: Introduction to health and environmental threats
Module 2: Introduction to sustainable development goals (SDGs) and their link with human health
Module 3: Data for effective communication and informed decision making on health for sustainable
Module 4: Sourcing data on health, environment and the SDGs
Module 5: Data processing and analysis to make data meaningful
Module 6: Data visualisation
