However, many adverse health outcomes are also expected as a result of climate change, and these outcomes will outweigh the benefits (McMichael et al. 2004). Even today, climate change is considered to be an important risk: climate change risks are accountable for 5% of all environmental risk factors (refer to Fig. 1-1 in Chapter 1). Climate change affects many health outcomes, including malnutrition, diarrhea, malaria, injuries and deaths due to floods, and cardiovascular diseases. For example, in seasonally dry and tropical regions at lower latitudes, food production is expected to decrease with even small increases in local temperature (IPCC 2007).

Point-of-use systems have only been evaluated for their effectiveness in reducing diarrhea, which is usually water-borne. In 2005, Lorna Fewtrell and others conducted a meta-analysis that included point-of-use treatment, improved water supply, improved hygiene, improved sanitation, and multiple interventions. ” Fewtrell et al. (2005) advise that a better method might involve phased implementation of multiple projects, giving each component sufficient attention. 2 Diseases Related to Air Pollution Among the leading 10 disease groups contributing to the global burden of disease are lower respiratory infections, ischemic heart disease, stroke, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

A combination of engineering activities and hygiene education, such as the interventions depicted on this diagram, can effectively act as barriers to all routes of transmission. , latrines) to ensure 100% prevention.

Contamination of food results from washing or preparing it with fecally infected water; harvesting food from fields irrigated with contaminated water, polluted by runoff, or used for defecation; or through preparation of food with unwashed hands.
