Follow this outline when writing the policy brief: 1. Describe the policy health issue. Include the following information: (a) what population is affected, (b) at what level does it occur (local, state, or national), and (c) evidence about the issues supported by resources. 2. Create a problem statement. Public Health issues on climate change


The greatest threat to human health is climate change, and medical experts are already acting globally to mitigate its adverse health effects. Disruption of food systems, increases in zoonoses and food, water and vector-borne diseases, and mental health problems are among the major health impacts of climate change (Kotcher et al., 2021). Extreme weather events such as heat waves, storms and floods are also becoming more frequent. In addition, many social determinants of health, such as access to healthcare, equity and livelihoods, will be weakened by climate change. The most vulnerable and disadvantaged groups, such as women, children, ethnic minorities, poor communities, migrants or displaced persons, and the elderly, are disproportionately affected by these climate-sensitive health problems. While it is clear that climate change is having an impact on human health, it remains difficult to predict the scale and severity of many weather-related health hazards (Dupraz & Burnand, 2018). But as science advances, we can increasingly link increases in disease and death to human-caused global warming and more accurately assess the severity of these health problems. continue…
