Climate Change and Health: A Framework for Action
2014 | Download
This framework maps climate change processes against a social determinants of health framework to identify opportunities for action at the intersection of climate and health. The framework is based on interviews and focus groups with over 135 people working in climate change and in public health, and builds upon the BARHII’s Public Health Framework for Reducing Health Inequities (2006), and on the Climate Change and Health Framework developed by Patz and Haines (JAMA, 2004). It endeavors to provide a visual way to understand the relationships between climate change and health/health inequities, and how public health and climate change interventions are linked.
