Tele-epidemiology

The theme is interested in the analysis of the relations between climate, environment and health in order to highlight the links between the emergence and the spreading of diseases and the climate and environmental changes using in particular data from spatial missions in the Earth observation.

This concerns, on the one hand, infectious diseases which are transmitted by water (eg cholera), air (eg meningitis) or by vectors such as insects, mites or gastropods (eg malaria, dengue, zika, chikungunya, Rift Valley fever, leishmaniasis, bilharzia, borreliosis, etc.) or even by rats, stray dogs (eg leptospirosis).


On the other hand, it relates to non-transmissible diseases (respiratory diseases, cardiovascular diseases, cancers, allergies) that can be caused by present organic or inorganic elements in the environment (ex atmospheric pollution, pollens) or extreme climate-related events (eg heat waves).
