Oregon Health Authority launched the new Oregon Climate Health and Resilience Plan this month, offering a selection of strategies and policy priorities for state, local, and tribal public health practitioners and partners.

These strategies and policy priorities advance public health in a changing climate and "prioritize interventions that address the root causes of health inequities and preventable diseases in Oregon." 

Included in the Plan are 16 priorities and recommendations for how action can be taken between current day and the year 2021, case studies and videos highlighting what is already being done by the public health workforce, policies that affect air quality and local food systems, information for health care partners to protect their patients from climate-related health risks, and solutions that will help promote community improvements and resilience.
