Climate and Health Adaptation Practices in the
Philippines: Progress and Challenges

Join us for the November CHanGE Breakfast Seminar and connect with
others at UW interested in climate change and health!

Dr. Ron Law is a Fulbright visiting scholar from the Philippines. He is a senior medical officer and health emergency and disaster expert working for the Philippine Ministry of Health. As Chief of Preparedness, he has responsibilities in policy development, program management, capacity building and research for health system resilience. He is also adjunct professor of public health at the University of the Philippines.

Adapting to health risks brought about by climate change is of critical importance especially to highly vulnerable and resource-constrained countries such as the Philippines. Thus far, the country had made significant progress in health adaptation however challenges in implementation need to be addressed. Identifying key policy principles behind health adaptation in the country and looking into these challenges can potentially bring out insights that may inform current and future solutions in health adaptation programming in countries with similar settings

Please RSVP to so we can get an accurate count for breakfast supplies.
