Abstract:

Hot Zones shows just how closely human health is dependent on that of the environment. With the outbreak of thirty previously unknown diseases in the last two decades, the film examines the human consequences of altering global and local ecosystems. In this program, we visit Kenya, Peru, Bangladesh and the United States where changing climates, uncontrolled development and loss of natural habitat have led to an increase in infectious disease. We also explore how cutting edge use of remote sensing data and new epidemiology studies are assisting health and ecosystem scientists predict and ultimately control serious epidemics.
