Climate change has already affected many aspects of the earth ecological system. Population health should be one of the most concerned. However, the relationship between climate and population health, including both chronic diseases and infectious diseases, is far from clear. A critical review of previous studies on the relationship between climate change and population health has been conducted with focuses on research methodology, including study population, study design and statistical method, and their results. Further research trends on climate change and population health will be addressed based on the critical review.
