What is it about?

It is crucial that climate change is recognized as a multifactorial problem that affects our health through multiple direct and indirect pathways. The book, Climate Change and Health: Improving Resilience and Reducing Risks, is a worthwhile resource for those interested in either climate change or health, or both.

Why is it important?

The book explains that climate conditions interfere with people’s health in a number of ways, quantifying its risk in public health. Consequently, many readers will realize that the integrated health care system contributes to people’s health, closely associated to climate change, although disease specific programs are always necessary.

Perspectives

I hope the readers of this article and the book would like to learn more about the association between climate change and health.
