Abstract

Le changement climatique et ses impacts sur la santé sont de plus en plus reconnus par les organisations médicales et les revues de pointe du monde entier. Cependant, à ce jour, il y a eu une focalisation insuffisante sur les impacts sur la santé des enfants, et encore moins, sur le rôle des professionnels de la santé pédiatriques en milieux défavorisés.

Abstract

El cambio climático y su impacto sobre la salud son cada vez más reconocidos por las principales organizaciones médicas y publicaciones del mundo. Sin embargo, hasta el momento no se ha hecho suficiente énfasis sobre el impacto en la salud de los niños, y menos aún sobre el papel de los profesionales sanitarios pediátricos en emplazamientos con pocos recursos.
