dc.description.abstract Findings stress the importance of human drivers of vulnerability and adaptive capacity and the need to address social determinants of health to reduce the potential disease burden of climate change. This study formed the basis of pilot research to inform development of a 5-year health research and intervention project. It provides summaries of climate-sensitive health outcomes identified as priority concerns, including malaria, malnutrition, respiratory disease, and stomach disorders, followed by characterization of the pathways of biophysical exposure to climate-sensitive health outcomes: water, food security, infectious disease vectors, and weather events. en
