Topic Information

Dear Colleagues,

Poor air quality is the leading cause of global disease burden. Considerable evidence has consistently indicated that exposure to air pollution contributes to increased risks of diseases such as ischemic heart disease, stroke, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and lung cancer. Furthermore, climate change will directly affect human health through extreme weather events such as heat waves. Clarifying the impact of pollution and heat waves on health is one of the leading concerns in the field of environmental health, and there is a practical significance for putting forward the corresponding health management countermeasures.

Therefore, we welcome submissions on a wide range of topics including, but are not limited to, the following topics:

  • The impact of air pollution on human health;
  • The impact of heat waves on human health;
  • The health management countermeasures related to the impact of air pollution on human health;
  • The health management countermeasures related to the Impact of heatwaves on human health.
