Description
 
The changing climate is linked to increases in a wide range of non-communicable and infectious diseases. There are complex ways in which climatic factors like temperature, humidity, precipitation, extreme weather events, and sea-level rise can affect the prevalence of disease. Identification of communities and places vulnerable to these changes can help health departments assess and prevent associated adverse health impacts. This document presents the Building Resilience Against Climate Effects (BRACE) framework to help health departments prepare for and respond to climate change. The BRACE framework is a five-step process that helps health departments to understand how climate has and will affect human health, and enables health departments to employ a systematic, evidence-based process to customize their response to local circumstances. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
