Climate change and health equity

Climate change is one of the biggest public health threats today, particularly when it comes to health inequities or preventable differences in health outcomes caused by systemic, avoidable, and unjust social and economic policies and systems.

While climate change is a global phenomenon, the consequences impact places, people and communities at the local level. Low-wealth communities and communities of color across the country suffer a substantially higher burden. Climate change exacerbates these health risks and inequalities for some people and communities.
