This interactive, online session aims to explain how the impacts of climate change can increase the risk of infectious disease and how hand hygiene can be the first and the last defence against these diseases. The session will use a practical demonstration to show the impact of good and poor hand hygiene on pathogens, along with an expert discussion.
The impact of climate change on water and extreme weather events are well known, but do you know how these changes affect the spread of disease? This online session will explain how the impacts of climate change increase the risk of infectious disease and how hand hygiene can be an effective way to safeguard human health.
Dr Marie Vaganay Miller, Lecturer in Environmental Health, The Belfast School of Architecture and the Built Environment, Ulster University
Young people and teachers, but everyone is welcome.
This live, online event will be of interest to anyone who wants to find out how hand hygiene can prevent the spread of disease.
