About Us

The CDC climate and public health framework was established in 2006, due to a recognition by several scientists that there was a need to prepare for the inevitability of climate change, and the impact it would likely have on the health of US residents and the world population in general. In FY2009, CDC formally established its Climate and Health Program. For more information on CDC's Climate and Health Program feel free to send an e-mail to:

The mission of CDC’s Climate and Health Program is to:

1) lead efforts to identify vulnerable populations to climate change,

2) prevent and adapt to current and anticipated health impacts, and

3) ensure that systems are in place to detect and respond to current and emerging health threats.
