Bringing science and development together through news and analysis

WHO: Climate change and human health

This part of the WHO's website focuses on the links between climate change and health. One factsheet looks specifically at climate change and infectious disease: it examines the historical evidence for links between climate and vector-borne disease, outlines different models to forecast climatic influences on infectious disease and offers examples of exactly how changes in climate can affect the spread of infectious disease. Another factsheet describes how to translate the science into useful policy decisions so will be particularly valuable for policymakers.
