Combined impact of heat stress and air pollution on non-communicable disease burden of India in the global warming era
While impacts of air pollution and heat stress on the non-communicable disease burden are established, evidence from the LMICs with indigenous health data are quite limited and most importantly, their combined impact is hardly documented. This project aims to fill this knowledge gap with a focus on ...
