State, tribal, territorial, and local health departments are addressing the urgent need to adapt to the health impacts of climate change. To aid in these efforts, CDC’s Building Resilience Against Climate Effects, or BRACE, framework was created to navigate the health adaptation process.
Due to systemic biases, a history of racist policies and practices, and a lack of resources, justice, equity, diversity and inclusion, or JEDI, are not always a leading emphasis in health adaptation planning.
