BEMA Int Health Organization and General members. GCHA Membership Application Not accepted.

Health Organization, and General membership of BEMA International:

Although BEMA International membership application was not accepted for the Global Climate and Health Alliance (GCHA, ), nor aligned with current members of the GCHA:
  • Center for Climate Change Communication
  • UWI (University of West Indies, St. Augustine, Trinidad and Tobago)
  • Zimbabwe Climate Change Coalition
  • Youth Advocacy and Development Network-Uganda
  • Other non-health organizations
To our members in the medical profession (physicians, nurses, etc.), CDC (Center for Disease Control), public health organizations, medical schools, and within the island nations in the UWI sphere submit your organization applications in the GCHA and continue to advocate for equitable health in every aspect for all communities and members of the ‘WHOLE COMMUNITY’ and the interrelationship of climate change to individual health.

The COVID-19 pandemic of 2019-Present, and even during the Ebola Crisis of 2014-Present focused on the need for community engagement and participation in the planning, preparedness, response, long-term recovery, mitigation, and adaption to these crisis events associated with human contact, directly and indirectly climate related events.  

Emergency management is integrated into every critical infrastructure sector of communities and each member of BEMA International in any sector plays a key role as part of a vast systems in addressing not only your local, but greater ‘global’ community in planning, preparedness, and each of the phases of emergency management for the survivability of you, your family, and community.  Climate change must be factored into not only healthcare but each of the critical infrastructure sectors with community engagement and participation.

Keep in mind:

Be safe, stay healthy, be prepared.

We are now faced with the fact that tomorrow is today.  We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now.  In this unfolding conundrum of life and history there is such a thing as being too late.  Procrastination is still the thief of time.  Life often leaves us standing bare, naked and dejected with a lost opportunity.  This may well be mankind’s last chance to choose between chaos or community.”

Dear Mr. Sharp,

 Thank you for your application to the Global Climate and Health Alliance. Our apologies for the long delay in getting back to you.

We appreciate and support the work that you are doing. However, as our membership is health organization focused, we regret to inform you that we cannot accept your application.
