Climate Risks to Health Set to Worsen Inequity, Harm Children

Rising global health risks driven by climate change will hit the poorest, most vulnerable people the hardest—and failure to prepare for those threats will mean more deaths and suffering, according to a leading environmental health scientist. From impoverished families living in flood-prone homes to women whose cultures require them to stay covered in extreme heat, climate impacts on health have ‘a strong equity component’, said Kristie Ebi, a professor at the University of Washington’s Center for Health and the Global Environment. Besides hiking dangers from deadly heat and spreading diseases, climate change will fuel a rise in basic health problems—from diarrhoea to poor nutrition—that will affect the poor most and likely widen global inequalities, she said.
