As we leave 2018 behind, we take stock of the 281 climate and geophysical events which contributed to 60 million people and their health being affected. Further disruption is expected in 2019, with the onset of another El Nino event. In light of this, we must consider how do we in the UK and the international community assess, prepare and protect public health in the face of growing challenges from natural disasters.
