About Us

The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) is one of 16 agencies across the country that received a grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as part of the Climate-Ready States and Cities Initiative. This program is intended to help agencies address the public health effects of climate change related events.

The Climate and Health Program is part of Environmental Public Health in the Center for Prevention and Health Promotion.

Capacity-building projects differ from state to state and city to city and may include:

  • Developing and improving climate change data through selected SEHIC Climate Change Indicators
  • Developing programs and workshops to educate state agencies about climate change
  • Improving partnerships between agencies

In Oregon, public health officials have:

  • Conducted workshops
  • Created presentations on preparing for climate change-related events in a public health context
  • Established a mini-grant process for counties to implement their own climate change preparedness

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has more information on the Climate-Ready States and Cities Initiative.
