Undoubtedly, climate change is the biggest global health threat of the 21st century, with enormous consequences for humanity. Rising temperatures have been observed all over the world considerably and have become a growing challenge for our community. Problems are already experienced by millions of people during the summertime and aggravated during heat waves, particularly in occupational settings. The Special Issue of IJERPH aims to contribute to our understanding of how climate change and different environmental factors impact human health, especially patients with chronic conditions who are consistently the most vulnerable population to heat exposure. All topics related to climate change and health are welcome. In addition to original research, we also welcome the submission of systematic reviews, meta-analyses, as well as manuscripts dealing with research methodologies and data processing. By building on previous research and expanding our knowledge on how different environmental factors impact human health, this Special Issue will enhance our understanding of how climate change affects public health.
