Vulnerability of Climate and Vector-Borne Diseases

The CDC initiative “Building Resilience Against Climate Effects (BRACE)” is a 5 step framework to facilitate developing plans to communicate and prepare for health effects of climate. Our support to the Arizona Department of Health Services is to provide the scientific background behind climate associated infectious disease concerns in Arizona, in particular, West Nile virus disease and valley fever. Using climate models, we are developing projections of future risk.
