Climate and Health
The potential impact of climate change on public health is of rising concern. While there are known, effective public health responses to many of these impacts, the scope, timeline, and complexity of climate change challenges are unprecedented. Critical gaps remain in the resources, programs and expertise in Minnesota’s public health system’s capacity to address the consequences of climate change on public health. Through a grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), MDH is beginning to address these gaps and build the state’s capacity to adapt to climate change and its implications on human health.
