2019 Lancet Countdown Policy Brief for the US

A special companion Policy Brief for the United States (U.S.) is written alongside The Lancet Countdown: Tracking Progress on Health and Climate Change. The Policy Brief showcases U.S. data from the global indicators with additional supplemental source data to draw out the most nationally relevant findings and highlight the key threats and opportunities climate change poses for health in the U.S. This process is supported by a U.S. Working Group of more than 50 institutions and organizations affiliated with climate change and health, and over 50 individuals reviewed and contributed to the 2019 U.S. Policy Brief.
