MYERS, J et al. A public health approach to the impact of climate change on health in southern Africa: identifying priority modifiable risks. SAMJ, S. Afr. med. j. [online]. 2011, vol.101, n.11, pp.817-819. ISSN 2078-5135.

Anthropogenic climate change and anticipated adverse effects on human health as outlined by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) are taken as givens. A conceptual model for thinking about the spectrum of climate-related health risks ranging from distal and infrastructural to proximal and behavioural and their relation to the burden of disease pattern typical of sub-Saharan Africa is provided. The model provides a tool for identifying modifiable risk factors with a view to future research, specifically into the performance of interventions to reduce the impact of climate change.
