It is enormously fitting that the United Nations 2022 theme for International Women’s Day is ‘Changing Climates: Equality today for a sustainable tomorrow’ and that #IWD on March 8 follows so quickly after the latest dire report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
International Women’s Day is an opportunity to celebrate all women in all their diversity. This year’s theme not only recognises the impacts of climate change – it also highlights the important roles taken up by women and girls around the world to act, adapt and mitigate climate change, and to highlight what further actions are needed.Professor Lucie Rychetnik, The Australian Prevention Partnership Centre Co-Director
While the Prevention Centre has supported a range of research projects that are focused on improving the health and wellbeing of women, we are also bringing attention on the synergies between climate change and public health.
Continuing our celebrations for International Women’s Day, next week’s March issue of the Chronicle newsletter will pay tribute to the great work of two Centres of Research Excellence (CRE) members of the Collaboration for Enhanced Research Impact (CERI). We look forward to sharing with you the latest exciting news from the Women’s Health in Reproductive Life (CRE-WHiRL) and Health in Preconception and Pregnancy (HiPP) collaborative ,
