    1. Climate Change and Health
    2. Is the climate changing?
    3. Is the climate changing? Global air temperature up by 0.6 °C in the 20th Century
    4. Is the climate changing? Global air temperature up by 0.6 °C in the 20th Century 1990’s hottest decade in 100 years
    5. Is the climate changing? Global air temperature up by 0.6 °C in the 20th Century 1990’s hottest decade in 100 years Predictions for UK to 2080
    6. Is the climate changing? Global air temperature up by 0.6 °C in the 20th Century 1990’s hottest decade in 100 years Predictions for UK to 2080 increase summer average 2-3.5 °C
    7. Is the climate changing? Global air temperature up by 0.6 °C in the 20th Century 1990’s hottest decade in 100 years Predictions for UK to 2080 increase summer average 2-3.5 °C milder wetter winters
    8. Is the climate changing? Global air temperature up by 0.6 °C in the 20th Century 1990’s hottest decade in 100 years Predictions for UK to 2080 increase summer average 2-3.5 °C milder wetter winters increased frequency of extreme weather
    9. Is the climate changing? Global air temperature up by 0.6 °C in the 20th Century 1990’s hottest decade in 100 years Predictions for UK to 2080 increase summer average 2-3.5 °C milder wetter winters increased frequency of extreme weather reduced cloud cover
    10. Is the climate changing? Global air temperature up by 0.6 °C in the 20th Century 1990’s hottest decade in 100 years Predictions for UK to 2080 increase summer average 2-3.5 °C milder wetter winters increased frequency of extreme weather reduced cloud cover rising sea levels
    11. Weather Disasters and Health
    12. Weather Disasters and Health Direct injury and loss of life
    13. Weather Disasters and Health Direct injury and loss of life Reduced nutritional status
    14. Weather Disasters and Health Direct injury and loss of life Reduced nutritional status Increased respiratory infection
    15. Weather Disasters and Health Direct injury and loss of life Reduced nutritional status Increased respiratory infection increased intestinal infection
    16. Weather Disasters and Health Direct injury and loss of life Reduced nutritional status Increased respiratory infection increased intestinal infection exposure to dangerous chemicals
    17. Weather Disasters and Health Direct injury and loss of life Reduced nutritional status Increased respiratory infection increased intestinal infection exposure to dangerous chemicals contamination of water supplies
    18. Weather Disasters and Health Direct injury and loss of life Reduced nutritional status Increased respiratory infection increased intestinal infection exposure to dangerous chemicals contamination of water supplies Population displacement
    19. Vector Borne Disease and Climate Change Vector Disease Malaria, Filiariasis, Dengue Mosquitoes Fever, Yellow Fever, West Nile Fever Sandflies Leishmaniasis Triatomines Chagas Disease Lyme Disease, Tick- borne Ticks encephalitis, Tsetse Flies African Trypanosmiasis Blackflies Onchocerciasis
    20. Infectious Intestinal Disease
    21. Infectious Intestinal Disease Changing climate may lead to:
    22. Infectious Intestinal Disease Changing climate may lead to: Changes in availability of water resources
    23. Infectious Intestinal Disease Changing climate may lead to: Changes in availability of water resources Water contamination
    24. Infectious Intestinal Disease Changing climate may lead to: Changes in availability of water resources Water contamination Increase in heavy rainfall
    25. Infectious Intestinal Disease Changing climate may lead to: Changes in availability of water resources Water contamination Increase in heavy rainfall Salmonella: Europe
    26. Infectious Intestinal Disease Changing climate may lead to: Changes in availability of water resources Water contamination Increase in heavy rainfall Salmonella: Europe Shigella: South Asia
    27. Rainfall and Health
    28. Rainfall and Health Potential health Event Description impact Increased or decreased Heavy Rain Extreme Event mosquito population Contamination of River or stream Localised Flood surface water, Rats overflows move closer to surface Faecal contamination Property or crops Serious Flood and Leptosporiasis damaged (Weil’s Disease) Increased risk of More than 10 killed respiratory and Catastrophic flood People killed or injured diarrhoeal disease, Drowning
