    The mention of climate change often conjures thoughts of the environmental impact this phenomenon is having, from disrupted habitats to destructive weather patterns. There is also a human cost relating to climate change, in the form of the spread of diseases once restricted to specific climates and now spreading across borders to a wider range of countries and terrains. In a study in BMC Public Health the impact of climate change of the emergence of dengue fever in Europe is modelled. Here we ask Editorial Board member for BMC Public Health Nakul Chitnis and colleague Pie Müller from the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute, Switzerland, about the current public health burden of this disease, why it has spread, and challenges in predicting the risk of dengue fever in certain areas.
