Last August, the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) celebrated its 20th anniversary. Since the Second Assessment Report, the IPCC is currently focusing on the potential effects of climate on health. However, the diseases related to climate, beyond the victims of the so-called natural disasters are increasing all over the world. This paper presents a brief overview on the reports and the overall picture of the current situation.

Keywords : Climatic changes; Public health.
