Climate Change and Health Across the Life Course
Climate change is transforming all aspects of life on earth, including human life. This issue of the journal includes three articles summarising the available reviews on the impact of climate change on maternal and newborn health, child and adolescent health, and older people, which together take a life course approach to optimal development and healthy ageing. Reflecting evidence reviews, these articles explain that climate change has diverse and detrimental impacts on health and well-being across all life stages, from infancy to older age. The articles in this special issue identify climate hazards and their differential impacts on health for three distinct life stages, discuss exposure pathways, and consider vulnerabilities at individual and population levels that put people at a higher risk.
