Climate Change and Human Health Literature Portal

Coming Soon!
Look for exciting changes to the Climate Change and Human Health Literature Portal including a new design, more features, and references published in 2018.

The Climate Change and Human Health Literature Portal is a knowledge management tool for locating the most relevant scientific literature on the health implications of climate change. It provides access to a database of studies from around the world, published between 2007 and 2018. The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) developed the database as a technical input to the U.S. Global Change Research Program's Sustained Assessment process. The portal is an effort to make this database more accessible to a wider global audience, and to provide updates on a regular basis to further the study of climate impacts on human health.

In addition to the basic Search function on this page, this portal offers a wide array of descriptive filters (e.g., geographic area, audience, type of material, time-span, and others) that can be used to modify your search. These filters are viewable on the Search Results page once an initial search has been done. Below are some Example Explorations of questions that may be researched using this database.
