About Us

Climate change represents the greatest public health challenge of the 21st century, and has profound implications for human health, today and in the future. To this end, the Yale Center on Climate Change and Health (CCCH) utilizes research, education, public health practice, and service to help achieve a world with a stable and safe climate; one in which the public's health and diverse ecosystems can thrive. The YSPH Concentration in Climate Change and Health will work to address the severe shortage of public health professionals with the educational background needed to address climate change as a public health issue. The study of climate change and health is multi-disciplinary and should interest students from all YSPH departments. Climate change is an environmental exposure (Dept. of Environmental Health Sciences) that can affect both infectious (Dept. of Epidemiology of Microbial Diseases) and chronic (Dept. of Chronic Disease Epidemiology) diseases. Research about the relationship between climate change and health can involve sophisticated modeling (Dept. of Biostatistics and others). Behavioral change, mental health, and social justice are major concerns (Dept. of Social and Behavioral Sciences). Finally, health management expertise is needed to develop mitigation and adaptation strategies, and climate change involves thorny policy issues (Dept. of Health Policy and Management).
