Environmental and Socioeconomic Risks

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 23%, or roughly 12.6 million, of all global deaths annually are linked to environmental causes.* Increased investment in global health systems could prevent 97 million premature deaths by 2030. In recognition of the relevant issues and the need for change, this collection of review articles focusing on the impacts of pollution, climate change, and socio-economic risk factors has been curated and made freely available by non-profit publisher Annual Reviews
