About Climate Tracker – Climate and Health Photo Contest

Climate change impacts health both directly and indirectly. Some of the health impacts associated with the climate crisis include respiratory diseases, vector-borne diseases, heat strokes, mental illness and others, as mentioned in the latest report on Health & Climate Change launched by the World Health Organization during COP24.
