The Mediterranean has become a "climate hotspot", with record heat and drought driving some of the most intense blazes on record for the region. These highly interconnected climate risks have resulted in compounding environmental health exposures for the regions inhabitants. This webinar seeks to elevate the health voice by bringing together clinical, public health and emergency response experts to assess emerging health impacts and explore opportunities for bolstering health system responses to safeguard human health.
