PLOS Medicine Publishes Special Issue On Climate Change And Health
PLOS Medicine: Climate Change and Health
“Climate change and the impacts on health are being increasingly reported and documented. … Throughout July PLOS Medicine is publishing a Special Issue on climate change and health. Guest edited by Dr. Jonathan Patz (University of Wisconsin-Madison) and Dr. Madeleine Thomson (Columbia University), the issue focuses on topics including the health effects of extreme heat and flooding, food system effects, non-communicable disease risk, such as air pollution, infectious disease risks, and the health benefits of greenhouse gas mitigation policies. The issue has a particular focus on evidence-based studies focused on policy-relevant work on adaptation and mitigation options” (July 2018).
