Supporting Urban Health Departments in Advancing Climate Health Equity
PHI's Center for Climate Change and Health has engaged 13 urban local health departments in a learning collaborative focused on advancing health equity. In Denver, where heat-related mortality is projected to double by 2050, grantees are creating a mapping tool that will include a climate and health equity vulnerability index.
The collaborative is funded by The Kresge Foundation, and seeks to build capacity in urban local health departments to address climate change, health, and equity through a variety of different approaches in collaboration with community partners. Read about the other projects.
