EDITORIAL

It is a common phenomenon: Topics of crises appear and disappear on and from the news following the acuteness of the word “crisis” which implies an only temporary state. This however is misleading as the consequences and implications involved in many crises are often protracted and can involve different areas of human life which are associated with one another: economy, politics and health. Climate change or the migrant flows are examples of global health issues that have acute but first and foremost long term implications for multiple areas of human life all of which are not even fore-
seeable for us today.

Association between migraine and the risk of developing Parkinson’s disease

As both migraine and parkinson disease (PD) are disorders of the brain and involve some similar mechanisms, it has been speculated that migraine may be a risk factor for PD. However, only recently a large population-based study found an association between the two neurological disorders. Confirmation of these findings are urgently needed as the care and treatment of patients with migraine may be affected.

Labour migration as an adaptation of climate change: health implications

In Africa, climate change is expected to amplify the intensity and frequency of drought or flooding, whose uncertainty makes increasingly difficult to predict fluctuations in crop yield and livestock feeding resources. For subsistence agriculture that continues today in large parts of rural Africa, uncertainty of food supply may, in the absence of well-functioning credit or an efficient food provision system, put households at risk for food insecurity. As a result, many people have chosen to diversify their livelihoods both occupationally and geographically rather than to invest in sustainable agriculture. By Aline Philibert, Invited Professor at CVV Paris
