Created: 8/09/2018 -

Abstract

Climate change impacts human health and wellbeing. The impacts of climate change, some of which are already underway in the United States, can affect the ability of health departments to protect the population within their jurisdiction. Many potential actions are available to health departments to help to prepare for the negative health effects of climate change. This document outlines one method of assessing evidence of effectiveness regarding health interventions related to climate change adaptation and gives examples of existing evidence for selected interventions.
