Climate Change and Health

Climate change undeniably poses many risks to our health, making it one of the greatest public health challenges of our time. Climate change is affecting our health in many forms — from the access and nutritional value of our food supply, to the quality of air that we breathe, to the safety of where we live, work and play. Stronger and more climate-resilient health systems can save lives and protect from future climate risks. Understanding the connection between climate change and human health is essential to fostering healthy solutions for a sustainable future. 

APHA’s 2017 Annual Meeting and Expo will mark the cornerstone of the Year of Climate Change and Health. APHA will:

  • Raise awareness by educating our members that climate change is a public health issue and not just an environmental health or an environmental issue.

  • Mobilize leaders who are interested in climate change but have not started to take action. 
Join APHA in the fight against climate change, and promote health for everyone!
