The Climate Hazard's Group CHIRPS dataset has been used in a recently published paper in Nature Climate Change. The paper, titled "Considering climate in studies of fertility and reproductive health in poor countries", examines women's health research with regards to climate and weather. The author references the CHIRPS dataset and provides some information on how to use different health and environmental data.

In the abstract, the author states, "Understanding the links between climate and fertility and reproductive health outcomes in poor countries is a major ethical and policy imperative. However, doing so will require researchers in population sciences and in earth and climate sciences to merge their expertise."
