OCHOA ZALDIVAR, Manuel; CASTELLANOS MARTINEZ, Rosa; OCHOA PADIERNA, Zuzel  and  OLIVEROS MONZON, Jorge Luis. Variability and climatic changes: their influence on health. MEDISAN [online]. 2015, vol.19, n.7, pp.873-885. ISSN 1029-3019.

Along history the earth has experienced changes in the climatic parameters of temperature, humidity, pressure, winds, rains, nubosity, among others. Initially, those changes which depend fundamentally on nature were called natural variability of climate, but for several years the man's action has impacted on them, so that the expression anthropogenic climatic change has also been used. On this respect, the impacts of the climatic change on human and natural systems are considered severe, of long reach and able to affect disproportionately the physically and economically more vulnerable population's sectors; so that many countries, among them Cuba, have worked to minimize its consequences. The authors of this work considered important to describe the current and futures effects of the variability and the climatic change in health

Keywords : climatic change; global heating; infectious diseases; climatic effects on health.
