Heat Watch/Warning Systems Save Lives: Estimated Cost and Benefits for Philadelphia 1995-98

Estimate of the cost of the Heat Health Warning Systems (HHWS), adopted and economic benefits (lives saved) and estimates net benefits

Climate’s long-term impacts on metro Boston, Final Report to the US EPA (CLIMB).

Describes impacts on a major U.S. city (Boston), what those impacts are likely to cost, and what adaptive measures can be taken to protect the region from the worst of these effects. Assessment of health from heat, and concludes adaptation can reduce to negligble risks

Health effects of climate change in the UK.

The Department of Health asked the Expert Group on Climate Change and Health in the UK to advise on the likely effects of climate change on health in the United Kingdom (UK). This report presents the Group’s findings.The available evidence has been examined and it has been concluded that climate change will have a significant effect on health in the UK.

Cost-Benefit Analysis of Vaccination against Tick-Borne Encephalitis among French Troops

Background: French troops are exposed to tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) during their tours of duty in the Balkans. This disease, potentially serious because of its lethality and morbidity, has an effective vaccination. The epidemiological characteristics of TBE in the Balkans are not well known. Objective: In order to provide the French Department of Defence with arguments on the utility of vaccinating troops on missions in this area of Europe, we conducted a cost-benefit study.

Costing the impacts of climate change in the UK: overview of guidelines

By reading this report, the user will gain a good appreciation of the contents of the implementation guidelines, and its potential as a tool to: • Provide guidance on how to generate valid ‘order of magnitude’ estimates of the cost of climate risks, and the benefits of adaptation to these risks. • Minimise the potential for poor, inaccurate or inconsistent cost estimation. • Provide the user with an iterative costing process with built-in flexibility to permit the depth of the analysis desired by the decision-maker to coincide with data, budget and time constraints.

Climate change and adaptation strategies for human health

The book represents the results of the cCASHh study that was carried out in Europe (2001-2004), co-ordinated by WHO and supported by EU Programmes. The flood events in 2002 and the heat wave of August 2003 in Europe had given evidence in a rather drastic way of our vulnerability and our non preparedness. The project has produced very important results that show that the concurrent work of different disciplines in addressing public health issues can produce innovative and useful results, providing an approach that can be followed on other public health issues.
