Oregon is one of many states studying and planning for the health impacts of climate change. As a participant in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Climate Ready States and Cities Initiative, the Oregon Health Authority’s Public Health Division (OHA) is undertaking a climate and health adaptation planning process known as BRACE (Building Resilience Against Climate Effects). The Oregon Climate and Health Profile Report is a principal component in the BRACE framework.

The BRACE framework is consistent with other planning processes such as basic policy analysis (1) and evidence-based public health practice (2). This report is intended to define and quantify the problem as a first step toward effective intervention
