dc.description.abstractGlobal climate change is expected to have a long-term effect on the ecosystem, thereby increasing the risk of various infectious diseases, specifically diarrhoeal and vector-borne ailments. Global warming is of particular concern as it creates warmer and wetter conditions which are conducive for disease transmission and propagation. The WHO Regional Office for South-East Asia organized an informal consultation in August 2009 in Kolkata to identify priority areas for research on the impact of climate change on communicable diseases. Generic protocols for research on such impact were reviewed at the consultation.en_US
