Health Impact Assessment of Global Climate Change: Expanding on Comparative Risk Assessment Approaches for Policy Making

This article, published in the 'Annual Review of Public Health,' describes the need for health impact assessments (HIA) to systematically identify and quantify the many pathways through which climate change can affect health. The authors advocate HIAs as a tool for public health stakeholders and policy makers to evaluate the economic, political, quality of life, and ethical dimensions of the impacts of climate change on human health.
