This is a literature review and information project to examine the current and projected changes in climate-sensitive infectious diseases in the Torres Strait, in collaboration with an Infectious Diseases physician. We are currently conducting this literature review and review of publicly available ID data (mainly the Qld Health register of notifiable diseases), with intentions to conduct some fieldwork visits in 2020 to the Torres Strait.
