Public Health Leaders Unveil Blueprint for Tackling Climate Change
Date:3/31/2008

The blueprint's top recommendations for the public health community call for:

-- Education and outreach, working to ensure that public health concerns are included in policies and programs related to climate change;

-- Research such as vulnerability assessments for specific communities and federally funded analyses of how the health impacts vary by region and population;

-- Advocacy, including helping decision makers understand the climate-health connection and strengthening the capacity of the public health work force to prepare and respond;

-- Support of best practices that build on existing public health programs that can help address climate change and that promote the development of healthy communities; and

-- Healthy behaviors such as helping the public health system go green, and walking or biking instead of driving a car, and reducing, reusing and recycling.

"The public health community has an important role to play in making the connection between the way we lead our lives, our impact on the planet and the planet's impact on our health," said Edward Maibach, PhD, professor and director of the Center of Excellence in Climate Change Communication Research at George Mason University. "This blueprint makes that connection crystal clear. It includes concrete recommendations to help health professionals face this unprecedented challenge."

Recommendations for the public are outlined as part of a Healthy Climate Pledge that individuals around the country will commit to during National Public Health Week and beyond, which urge the public to be prepared, travel differently, eat differently, and green their work and home.
