HHS Launches Climate Change Health Information Series

​The Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Climate Change and Health Equity Friday launched the Climate and Health Outlook, a public information series to inform health professionals and the public about potential climate-related health risks in the next 30 to 90 days and resources to take proactive action. The first edition uses temperature projections to highlight counties at higher risk from extreme heat and resources to help higher risk populations prevent heat-related health problems.
This inaugural edition of the Outlook will take on extreme heat, which has been a key target of the Administration’s efforts to build resilience to the impacts of climate change. As part of this and future editions, the Outlook series will add a health lens to seasonal weather and climate outlooks from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to inform health professionals and the public about weather- and climate-related health risks months in advance and provide resources to prepare.

The Outlook will be updated and improved regularly as future data and feedback are collected. Future editions will address other climate-related threats to the health of people living in the United States, with a focus on those most vulnerable.

The Outlook can be found here.
