Summer temperatures in India have been rising over the last few decades, resulting in increased heat-related morbidity and mortality.

Existing coping strategies appear to be inadequate to protect people from heat related stresses. There is a need for pre-emptive measures to ensure that people are adequately supported to reduce their vulnerabilities.
