Awareness that many aspects of public health are influenced by climate is growing dramatically. Results presented at the Wengen conference make clear that the science and art of integrating climate knowledge into the control of climate sensitive diseases on a year to year time frame, as well as careful assessments of the potential impacts of climate change on health outcomes over longer time frames, is advancing rapidly. This book provides a snapshot of these emerging themes.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"This book links climate changes with public health consequences ... . written for policy makers and public health leaders to alert them to the effect of climate change and weather on human health. ... This is a valuable contribution to the dialogue between experts in climate change and public health especially related to climate-induced changes in infectious disease patterns and the ability to anticipate and minimize the adverse health consequences of weather-related events." (Jeanne B. Hewitt, Doody's Review Service, October, 2008)
