"Climate Crisis & Emerging Disease Patterns: A One Health Approach"



Hot Topics: Climate Change & Infection Risks

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) warns that climate change amplifies the global risk of infectious diseases, altering transmission cycles and increasing human vulnerability.
 
Vector Chaos: Unpredictable Outbreaks
Climate variabilities like temperature, precipitation, and humidity are reshaping the behavior and distribution of disease vectors like mosquitoes, leading to unpredictable outbreaks of diseases like Dengue.
 
Human-Animal Conflict: A Pathogenic Exchange
Habitat destruction is pushing animals into human areas, increasing zoonotic diseases and inter-species pathogen transmission.
 
Surveillance & Data: The Reporting Challenge
India's Integrated Health Information Platform (IHIP) struggles to meet real-time tracking expectations. Enhanced surveillance systems are essential for tackling emergent disease scenarios.
 
One Health: A Unified Approach
To fight against climate-induced diseases, India needs a 'One Health' strategy that integrates human, animal, and environmental health surveillance.

"One Health" in India

India is adopting the "One Health" approach, aiming for an integrated surveillance of human, animal, and environmental health. This multidisciplinary strategy is critical for combating climate-induced diseases and zoonotic threats. Inter-agency cooperation and robust data-sharing are key components for its successful implementation.
 
Inter-Agency Coordination: A Must
Building synergies between various governmental departments is crucial for a robust and responsive health surveillance system.
 
'Disease X' & Beyond: Continual Challenges
While 'Disease X' captures global attention, re-emerging and well-known diseases continue to challenge public health systems, exacerbated by climate change.
 
The Road Ahead: Adaptation & Proactive Safeguarding
To combat the dual threats of a changing climate and infectious diseases, a concerted multi-disciplinary approach that safeguards ecosystems is crucial.
