IMPACT OF CLIMATE CHANGE ON THE HEALTH CARE SYSTEM IN BELGIUM

Description

This report assesses the impact of climate change on the healthcare system in Belgium. For different health sector related treats, the current situation as well as expected changes were identified in a first step. In a second step existing and planned measures were inventoried and evaluated. By combining the information of these two steps, possible gaps were identified leading to the proposal of adaptation measures and recommendations that can ensure the health care system to continue its healthprotective and curative role in the context of a changing climate. Across the study, special attention is paid to vulnerable populations.
