Health and Climate Change in Africa Documentary

HEALTHY FUTURES has recently been featured in a video documentary entitled Health and Climate Change in Africa, produced by Africa Turns Green, a charity that showcases the work of African green entrepreneurs who are protecting their environment.

This documentary is the last in a series of four reportages which present climate change and water issues in relation to agriculture, ecosystems, natural hazards, health and technologies. This video focuses on the collaborative research projects HEALTHY FUTURES and QWeCI, which are funded through the European Commission’s Seventh Framework Programme.

Both HEALTHY FUTURES and QWeCI focus on major vector-borne diseases such as malaria, Rift Valley Fever and schistosomiasis and are complimentary to each other, with QWeCI focusing on western Africa and HEALTHY FUTURES on eastern Africa.
