Aline Chiabai

Aline Chiabai Climate change will cause increasing health threats on our communities within the next 20 years, especially in the poorest countries and among vulnerable populations.

Health adaptation must therefore become a priority in policy making, and actions must be taken now to avoid unacceptable and unsustainable damages in the near future to our society, families and children.–
