Federal funding gap cited for research on human health impacts due to climate change
Date:3/26/2009

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Funding research on climate change and health "that is directly linked to protective action at the local level is a wise investment, consistent with the goals of restoring economic stability, justice and environmental quality, and reducing healthcare costs," the report states.

The report is co-written by the same authors who wrote the Climate Change and Human Health chapter in the July 2008 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency report: "Analyses of the Effects of Global Change on Human Health and Welfare and Human Systems." In addition to Dr. Kinney of the Mailman School of Public Health, the authors are from the Environmental Defense Fund, the University of Georgia, the University of Michigan, and Stratus Consulting, Inc.

In recognition of the critical importance of climate change and its adverse effects on health, the Mailman School of Public Health established a Program on Climate and Health in early 2009 led by Dr. Patrick Kinney to provide coordination and leadership to address these issues.
