Climate and health

Evidence & Translation

Our work aims to understand the impacts of climate change on women and their families and amplify our evidence-informed solutions to multiple audiences, including policy makers.

Climate change is the defining public health issue of the twenty first century. What is absent in Australia is clear national government policy which communicates and responds to climate change as a public health issue. We are working to change this.

Our point of difference is the MCHRI consumer-led, evidence-based implementation approach. Our work is developed with women and for women, and their families.

We collaborate with leaders in this field to produce impactful research that makes a meaningful difference to the lives of women and their families, through influencing policy, clinical practice, and within an empowerment framework.
