NINR has published a Request for Information (RFI) seeking comments and testimonies from the extramural scientific community, professional societies, and the general public regarding research gaps in which nursing research can make a difference and/or provide a unique perspective on advancing nursing research in climate and health.
NINR is an active participant in the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Climate Change and Health Initiative, which supports research to reduce climate-associated health threats across the lifespan and build health resilience in individuals, communities, and nations around the world, especially among those at highest risk to climate change hazards.
With its holistic, contextualized perspective to improve health, focus on individuals and communities, and commitment to health equity, nursing science plays a major role in understanding and mitigating the impact of climate change on health.
