This Friday 2 June, the three-year EU-funded project ÇİSİP, which is implemented by HEAL, HASUDER and Kocaeli University, and focuses on strengthening Turkish health sector engagement on climate and environmental policies, will hold its closing event. The theme of the gathering is how to build climate and disaster resilient health systems in Turkey.
Together with representatives from Turkish health and medical organisations, from the ministries of health and environment, and local authorities we will discuss what needs to happen in order to strengthen Turkey’s health systems. The recent earthquake has made it clear that natural disasters and climate change are two major challenges for Turkey’s health system. The natural disaster has added pressure on healthy systems which are already threatened by climate change, as the biggest threat to people’s health of the 21st century.
A panel of experts, composed of Ms Shweta Narayan, from Healthcare Without Harm, Prof. Cigdem Cayalan, Kocaeli University, Prof. Melike Yavuz from HASUDER, the Association of Public Health Specialists, Mr. Fevzi Ozuler, a lawyer, and Prof. Gulen Gullu, an Environmental Engineer, will be discussing the readiness of Turkey’s health system primarily towards climate change and natural disasters. It will also focus on the deliverables and road plan of related ministries in order to build resilient systems. The session will allow participants to make exchanges with decision makers and also learn about the impact of the CISIP project.
