Climate disasters have played a prominent role in displacing large populations. While there are other huge events responsible for displacing huge populations- such as war, genocide, violence and revolutions, weather related events are different. Weather induced disasters target certain populations selected by geographic regions rather than by race, ethnicity, politics, religion or economic factors. This potentially makes health care for populations displaced by events related to climate easier due to less political resistance and a more diverse population.
How can the healthcare community take a lead in prevention of disease when each event is unique, and thus likely to present features- and health risks- that are different from previous climate disasters?
