Climate Change, Health and Equity: Opportunities for Action

Climate change and health inequities are the greatest global health threats of the 21st century. In this report, PHI’s Center for Climate Change and Health explores the many ways in which climate change, health, and equity are connected. With input from more than a hundred public health professionals and community health, equity, and environmental justice advocates and support from The Kresge Foundation, this report presents a conceptual framework to help demonstrate how these issues are linked, and to identify opportunities and recommendations for action.
