EUROHEAT : EUROHEAT - Improving Public Health responses to extreme weather/heat-waves

Description:

The project's general aim was to improve public health responses to weather extremes and in particular heat waves. This was achieved by networking of a variety of stakeholders, such as health care, public health, epidemiology and meteorology, that had been involved in the assessment and response development of the past heat-waves; additional data gathering and information exchange; improving extreme weather and heat-wave preparedness and rapid responses through national and European coordination; and provision of advice and expertise to develop activities and actions, including legislative proposals to the EU.
