The Queensland Heat Health Community of Practice (QHHCoP) intends to improve local collaboration across sectors to assist in identifying, implementing and evaluating solutions to manage heat and human health issues across Queenslander.
The QHHCoP will not only serve as an archival resource, but also provide a dynamic function by facilitating collaboration on new research, along with advocating for increased investment in heat-health research and action.
We are a professional group focused on increasing awareness, investment and uptake of heat adaptation policy across Queensland.
By partnering with members working in government, research, policy, health, planning and non-profit organisations, the QHHCoP intends to improve local collaboration across sectors to assist and manage heat health related issues facing Queenslanders.
