In the other, those risks are diminished because the world has responded quickly and adequately to climate change, with a large-scale shift away from fossil fuels.

These two, starkly different paths are the focus of a report published Wednesday by the medical journal The Lancet that shows how the future health of a child born today will be intrinsically linked to climate change, from the womb to adulthood. Your inbox. Every weekend.
In the latest update to the Lancet Countdown—an ongoing study of the impacts of climate change on health— experts from around the globe write that the world's response to climate change will dramatically alter the lives of children. Climate change is already impacting public health. The warming already observed worldwide has created a climate that is more suitable for disease transmission, less productive for crops and more prone to extreme weather than ever before.
Nine of the 10 most suitable years for the transmission of dengue fever have occurred since Air pollution, primarily driven by fossil fuels and made worse by climate change, caused about 7 million deaths in But that doesn't compare to what's in store, the authors write.

With a global average life expectancy of 71 years, a child born today could experience a world that has warmed 4 degrees Celsius 7. We know it has the potential to undermine the last 50 years of gains in public health and overwhelm the systems we rely on. The update to the Lancet Countdown examines 41 indicators of climate change—from heat extremes to the spread of vector-borne diseases to how health systems are responding to global warming. This is the fourth update to the Countdown, which was first published in , and is the result of work from 35 academic institutions and UN agencies across the world, drawing from climate scientists, engineers, economists, political scientists, public health professionals and doctors.
There's one notable departure from earlier versions of the report: "This is the first time we feel we can say these health impacts have arrived in full," Watts said.

Or small parts of vector-borne diseases. The more we look now, the more we see it everywhere. The threat begins in the womb, where extreme heat and air pollution have both been found to contribute to low birth weights and neonatal deaths, said Salas. Under the convention, governments committed to, among other things, taking measures to save every child by providing good quality health care.
Over the past three decades, the world has seen remarkable progress in child survival, cutting the number of children worldwide who die before their fifth birthday by more than half. But there has been slower progress for newborns. Babies dying in the first month account for 47 per cent of all deaths among children under five.
These include a steady supply of clean water and electricity at health facilities, the presence of a skilled health attendant during birth, ample supplies and medicines to prevent and treat complications during pregnancy, delivery and birth, and empowered adolescent girls and women who can demand better quality of health services.
