how do extreme weather events affect health
changes in frequency, severity, geography can cause injury and death from storms, floods and cyclones. changes to Indian monsoon causes floods. WHO (2003) natural disaster impacts have been increasing globally

impact of malaria
1 mill deaths, 90% in africa

dengue dependence on climate
temp and RH shorten larvae dev time (naish et all 2014), precip needed as a breeding ground
6 of 14
global impact of dengue
2.5 bn at risk (40%), hales et al 2002 50-60% in 2050. most imp human arboviral worldwide (bouzid et all 2014). endemic in 100 countries but may be found in Europe

food poisoning risks
higher temps can increase replication cycles of food borne pathogens, and prolonged seasons may augment the opportunity for food handling mistakes (Kendrovski and Gjorgjev, 2012). increase in temp and floods cause increase in water contaminationm
