      Climate Change



      "We're committed to making sure the nation knows about the effects of climate change on health. If anyone doesn't think this is a severe problem, they are fooling themselves."
      -- APHA Executive Director Georges Benjamin, in The Washington Post



      From exposure to extreme weather and heat waves to worsening air pollution and the spread of insect-borne disease — climate change is a health emergency. That’s why APHA has signed on to the Climate, Health, and Equity Policy Action Agenda with more than 150 health organizations to protect the health and safety of all people in the U.S.
