Climate change & public health
Corporate Authors:National Center for Environmental Health (U.S.)
Description:The CDC climate change and public health framework was established in 2006, due to a recognition by many scientists that there was a need to prepare for the inevitability of climate change, and the impact it would likely have on the health of US residents and the world population in general.
CDC formally established its Climate Change Program in FY 2009. CDC’s Climate Change Program leads efforts to prevent and adapt to the anticipated health impacts associated with climate change.
The program seeks to identify populations most vulnerable to these impacts, anticipate future trends, assures that systems are in place to detect and respond to emerging health threats, and takes steps to assure that these health risks can be managed now and in the future.
