Climate Change and Infectious Diseases
Today, there is a clear increase in infectious diseases due to the spread of viruses such as SARS, Covid, hantavirus, etc. In addition, there is an emerging link between climate change and the spread of these types of viruses which are vulnerable to environmental factors and climatic events such as the increase in global temperature, deforestation, shifting rainfall, loss of natural habitat of species due to unsustainable construction, etc. Furthermore, it is becoming clear that our impact and the way we use natural resources extensively may further catalyze the spread of pathogens that are more sensitive to climate change in the future. This impact probably reflects the combination of our demographic, environmental and unsustainable lifestyles that have become negatively accentuated in recent decades. This one-day conference aims to open the debate and share knowledge on climate change and the spread of infectious diseases and pathogens in order to find ways to predict, avoid and restore the balance.
