Climate change is one of the greatest public health challenges of the 21st century. The health impacts of climate change will affect us all, but will have a greater impact on disadvantaged communities and threaten the systems on which human life depends – our air, water, food, shelter and security. In response to this pressing public health issue, in 2010 the San Francisco Department of Public Health created its Climate and Health Program. Our Climate and Health Program is working to develop solutions to support healthy and climate-ready communities.
