Center for Climate Change & Health

The Public Health Institute considers climate change to be one of the greatest global and domestic public health challenges of the 21st century. PHI’s Center for Climate Change & Health contributes to building healthy and climate-resilient communities that have the right tools to mitigate and adapt to climate change. The Center engages local leaders, scientists, policymakers, health care providers and civil society in mainstreaming the protection of health across a wide range of policies and sectors. It promotes strategies that reduce long-term climate change, promote climate resilient communities, protect all people from the health impacts of climate change, and optimize health and health equity outcomes. The Center is dedicated to tackling the challenge of climate change while creating more vibrant, healthy and equitable communities throughout the US and around the world.
