CLIMATE AND HEALTH

The Climate and Health section aims at raising awareness among the general population and health professionals on the climate-related health effects. As well, it drives the attention towards the good health practices and behaviours that can contribute to climate change mitigation. 

Climate change is defined as the "greatest global health threat facing the world in the 21st century" by The Lancet, one of the major medical journals. While global warming and the increasing frenquency in extreme events are causing direct health impacts, on the other side they also influence the social determinants of health. These are non-medical conditions but rather socio-economical and political factors that affect people's health and wellbeing.
