Communicating the Risk of Infectious Diseases in a Changing Climate

A changing climate brings the threat of emerging, new infectious diseases and the resurgence of old infectious outbreaks. To ensure that public health professionals and policy makers receive timely information, effective risk communication must be used.

NCCEH and NCCID jointly presented a webinar last year that provided different perspectives on communicating risk in an “environment of change". The objectives of the webinar were to:

present a range of perspectives on good risk communication for public health stakeholders and to discuss how public health can contribute to effective messaging by providing some examples of emerging and resurging infectious diseases in the context of a changing climate.
