2014 Climate and Health Profile Report
The Oregon Climate and Health Profile Report outlines the different health risks that will increase as our climate changes and describes the populations who are most vulnerable to these risks.
As part of the report, we developed an infographic (pdf) to help explain the health effects of climate change.
We invite you to share these resources with your partners and colleagues.
For questions regarding the report contact: Brendon Haggerty, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Climate Hazards in Oregon
The Oregon Climate and Health Program partners with the State's Preparedness, Surveillance and Epidemiology Team and the Health Security, Preparedness and Response Teams to study current climate hazards and response systems. Oregon's Public Health Hazard Vulnerability Assesment summarizes public health consequences of Oregon's likely hazards based on the input from local health jurisdictions, tribal health agencies, and emergency management partners.
The Oregon Health Authority now collects real-time data for public health and hospitals to monitor what is happening in emergency departments across the state. OHA provides regular Hazard Reports that offer a window into the health consequences of climate hazards.
