The public health sector is included in the sectoral vulnerability and risk assessment study for heat wave, drought and heavy precipitation in scope of the project Enhancing Adaptation Action in Türkiye.

Public health is a priority sector that also will be covered in Türkiye’s National Climate Change Adaptation Strategy and Action Plan (currently being updated to cover 2023-2030).

An example of an effort to integrate climate change adaptation into health sectoral policies, plans and programs is the National Program and Action Plan for Mitigating the Negative Impacts of Climate Change on Health.

Information from EEA report. Climate change and health: the national policy overview in Europe (2022)

National policies on climate change adaptation and national health strategies were analysed to identify the coverage of climate-related impacts on health (physical, mental, and social) and the types of interventions addressing them. The report provides a European overview, while the geographical coverage of various aspects of national policies across Europe can be visualized using the map viewer. The results for Türkiye are summarised here.

The National Climate Change Adaptation Strategy and Action Plan (2011-2023) has focused on five important fields, including public health, which are supported by technical and scientific studies and participatory processes.

The main actions within public health are:

  • Identifying the existing and future effects and risks of climate change on human health
  • Developing the capacity to combat risks originating from climate change in the national healthcare system
  • Strengthening the capacities of health sector organisations against health risks arising due to climate change

There is a National Program and Action Plan for Mitigating the Negative Impacts of Climate Change on Health.
