Can integrating climate into health programs improve health outcomes? The Between Two Baobab Trees podcast, developed by the EnCompass GHPOD II project in collaboration with the USAID Africa Health team’s Office of Sustainable Development, explores this question by analyzing the intersection between climate and health and highlighting the interconnected nature of the two through stories, evidence, and lessons learned. This podcast series includes seven episodes designed to help learners describe the impacts that climate has on health, the benefits of a multi-sectoral approach that addresses climate change and health outcomes, and ways to integrate climate into health programming. Each episode is hosted by a different USAID subject matter expert from the Africa Health Team and includes at least two guest speakers who provide additional insights on the sector being explored.

The episodes in this series are as follows:

Each episode is accompanied by reflection questions, an overview of key points, and additional resources to reinforce learning. The podcast is hosted on USAID University and made available on the public-facing USAID Africa webpage under Media and Resources.
