Excerpt
Introduction El Nin˜o is a complex climatic phenomenon that is, perhaps unfairly, associated with death and destruction. It increases the risk of extreme weather but also has more subtle effects on human health. This article reviews those studies that have examined the relationship between the quasi-periodic climate pattern and disease risk. The attribution of any single epidemic to El Nin˜o is difficult since the climate phenomenon is not thesameasextremeweather.Therelationships between extreme weather and deaths, injuries and subsequent outbreaks of disease have been well described. Particularly duringdisast ers, initial outbreaks may be compounded by the displacement of populations and failures in health infrastructures. Many recent events have shownhoweasily health services are overwhelmed by atypical weather conditions. Between October 1999 and March 2000 there were major disasters associated with La Nin˜a conditions in India, Mozambique, and Venezuela. Given the context of global climate change, which poses an increasingly certain threat (1), a better understandingof the relationships between weather, climate and human health is necessary.
