Health Impacts of Climate Change on Gender Diverse Populations A Scoping Review

Simmonds, K. E., Jenkins, J., White, B., et al. (2021). Health Impacts of Climate Change on Gender Diverse Populations: A Scoping Review. Journal of Nursing Scholarship. 54: 81- 91.
The authors reviewed 27 resources and found that natural disasters and inadequate disaster relief responses threaten gender diverse populations. They found four sub-themes that emerged from the review: inequitable distribution and lack of access to disaster relief resources; increased risk of gender-based violence; negative mental health affects; and miscategorization of gender during disaster relief efforts that indirectly caused harm. They emphasized the need for more research upon which recommendations can be made.
