CORE-STEP Capacity Training Program

We are excited to share our recently developed and delivered Core-Step capacity training program titled

“Health Risk Management Related to Climate Change Impacts”

This program, part of the CORE-STEP research initiative, was rolled out in three Indonesian cities: Banda Aceh, Mataram, and Ambon, from April 24 to May 1, 2024. The training targeted health workers from pilot community health centres (#PUSKESMAS) involved in the project and staff from each city’s health department. Our capacity-building training is designed to equip frontline health workers with the knowledge and tools to respond to the health impacts of climate change more effectively.

We were inspired by the enthusiasm of the participants and are deeply grateful for the support from our partner universities, local health departments, and the broader community. The success of our program lies in its practical approach, providing health workers with the latest strategies, relevant case studies, and simulated applications of the knowledge gained.

As a team, our mission is to raise awareness about the health impacts of climate change and to build resilience within our communities. Together, we strive to ensure a healthier and safer future for all.

The Core-Step project is supported by the Australian Government through KONEKSI – Australia-Indonesia Knowledge Partnership Platform and implemented by Universitas Syiah Kuala & Griffith University, and strategic partners Kementerian Kesehatan RI, ICLEI, CARI!
