Global climate change is a topical issue in multidisciplinary discourse. Specifically, the vulnerabilities and health risk posed by climate change to the health of women have been a major concern. This paper presents a descriptive analysis, utilizing secondary data, to examine the link between climate change and the health of women. The study finds that climate change affects women more than men. More so, vulnerabilities of women to the numerous life· threatening effects of climate change have been exacerbated by the insensitive nature of most climate change response programmes and policies. The study concludes that solving the health implications of climate change on women goes beyond drafting a special protocol or framework protecting women. Rather, there is need for collective effort of all concerned to act responsibly towards the environment. Therefore, the study recommends among others, the need to create knowledge based jobs for women as a way of ameliorating the impact of climate change on the health of women.
