A contribution to World Meteorological Day 1999, this draws attention to the linkages between climate, weather and health, and to the role of WMO and NMHSs in contributing to a safer and healthier world. It shows how humans are vulnerable to changes in meteorological conditions, such as extreme heat or sudden cold temperatures and harmful ultraviolet radiation from the sun, and to weather events such as tropical cyclones and severe floods, which create favourable conditions for the transmission of various diseases.
