CLINF-R - Epidemiology of infectious diseases in a changing climate with impacts on societies - expansion in Russia

The CLINF-Russia extension (CLINF-R) is an expansion of the Nordic Center of Excellence Climate-change effects on the epidemiology of infectious diseases and the impacts on Northern societies (CLINF), and will focus on the CLINF WP1 (“Human and animal diseases in the Nordic region: Retrospective data processing and modelling of future scenarios for locally applicable alert systems for CSI1 ”).

The key objective of CLINF-R is the same as for CLINF, but expanded into the vast realm of Eastern Russia: to clarify the impacts of climate change on the geographical distribution and epidemiology of climate sensitive infections (CSIs) and how this affects humans and animals, and especially animal husbandry households, which are particularly exposed and sensitive to CSI.
