National Public Health Week Focuses on Climate Change, Health

Monday marked the beginning of the 2008 National Public Health Week (NPHW), themed Climate Change: Our Health in the Balance. The launch of the week coincides with the observance of World Health Day, which also focuses on the health impacts of climate change.

NPHW, which runs April 7-13, aims to raise awareness of the direct connection between climate change and human health. The week is coordinated by the American Public Health Association and supported by the work of more than 50,000 members of APHA and its Affiliates, as well as numerous partner organizations.

"Although people are becoming more informed about the impact of humans on the planet, far fewer have an understanding of the health impacts that are already likely to come from climate change," said Georges C. Benjamin, MD, FACP, FACEP (E), executive director of APHA. "National Public Health Week is about getting the public health community involved in the climate change discussion and raising awareness about the small changes we can each make in our lives that can have a big impact on the planet and on our health."
