Project Details


The project will focus on remote Central Australia. The region has an arid climate and experiences extreme hot weather conditions during summer months. Climatic changes will worsen these conditions, placing greater strain on the life and health of Central Australians. There is an increasing urgency for primary health care (PHC) clinics in remote communities in Australia to work with communities to implement adaptation strategies to mitigate the health risks to remote residents. One of the first steps towards adaptation at the community level is to ensure that there is an adequate evidence base that is specific to the remote Central Australian context that can be used to develop appropriate heat-health responses.
