Climate Health Vulnerability Mapping (created by Khushi Baby), looks to address climate-related health outcomes such as: undernutrition, anemia, chronic lung disease, heat-related illnesses, vector-borne diseases, water-borne diseases, zoonoses, and mental health. The organization works primarily in Rajasthan, India where drought, heat-related illness, and lung-related deaths are of significant concern.
