Alaska is experiencing changes in climate, and temperatures in the state have warmed faster than the rest of the United States. Climate change has already affected human health in Alaska and additional impacts are likely to occur.

The impacts of climate change in Alaska have been well documented in historical, environmental, and regional contexts, but little has been published on the range of human health impacts statewide. This report
 (link below) provides a broad assessment of the potential adverse human health impacts of climate change in Alaska.

This report (link below) is also intended to serve as a resource for communities to determine which adverse impacts of climate change are most likely to affect their residents and to help communities develop their own adaptation strategies for climate change.
