The Climate Change and Human Health Literature Portal is a knowledge management tool for locating the most relevant scientific literature on the health implications of climate change. It provides access to a database of studies from around the world, published between 2007 and 2018. The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) developed this portal. The portal is an effort to make this database more accessible to a wider global audience, and to provide updates on a regular basis to further the study of climate impacts on human health.

In addition to the basic search functions, the portal offers a wide array of descriptive filters (e.g., geographic area, audience, type of material, time-span, and others) that can be used to modify your search. These filters are viewable on the Search Results page once an initial search has been done.

You can access the searchable database by clicking here.
