Population density (2017)

Climate change affects human health in a number of ways. The direct impacts include extreme weather such as flooding and droughts, which can cause displacement, injury or fatalities. The indirect impacts include altering ecosystems, including temperature, precipitation and humidity, which can facilitate the spread of vector-borne diseases. Climate change may also be a contributing factor in hazards that are strongly determined by human systems. The inaccessibility of many mountain communities, limited infrastructure and inadequate access to health care services, along with a lack of economic resources and other socioeconomic problems prevalent in mountain communities aggravate the negative impacts of climate change on human health.
