climatechange

Le changement climatique et la santé

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), climate change affects the “fundamental requirements for health5,” including clean air, safe drinking water, food security, and secure shelter. Many deadly diseases in the developing world, such as diarrheal diseases, malaria, and dengue fever, have become worse due to climate change. Preventing malaria and waterborne diseases with PermaNet® nets and LifeStraw® filters helps reduce the negative impact of climate change.
