US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC): Climate change and public health

The CDC's website on climate change and public health offers the background on why the spread of infectious disease is likely to change in the future. A special section on vector-borne diseases outlines how global warming could lead to the re-emergence of diseases such as dengue fever that have nearly been eradicated in some countries. It links to both the CDC's own program on these diseases as well as further reading material.
