Epidemiology indicates the research field to find distributions of diseases and associated risk factors. Further, environmental epidemiology studies mean studies on health outcomes related to environmental hazards and risk factors that can be related to the onset or aggravation of environmental exposures and/or events. Today, as one of the representative environmental hazards, climate change has been examined very actively. Numerous studies have investigated the impacts of climate change on health, and large relevant evidence has been rapidly accumulated. This presentation is to share the historical and current topics of climate change epidemiological study and discuss future topics, especially in relation to climate change scenarios and inequalities.
