Executive Summary: The changing climate is linked to increases in a wide range of non-communicable and 1 infectious diseases. There are complex ways in which climatic factors (like temperature, humidity, precipitation, extreme weather events, and sea-level rise) can directly or indirectly affect the prevalence of disease. Identification of communities and(More)
Climate change has the potential to influence the earth's biological systems, however, its effects on human health are not well defined. Developing nations with limited resources are expected to face a host of health effects due to climate change, including vector-borne and water-borne diseases such as malaria, cholera, and dengue.

Climate change is expected to adversely affect public health through multiple pathways. 1 Assessing the projected health burden is an important step for public health agencies to prepare for these impacts. This can be done qualitatively or quantitatively, but quantitative projections may provide more useful information about likely impacts. Many health(More)
