Health care professional networks

The movement for healthy people and a healthy planet.

Health professionals are both trusted communicators and important actors when it comes to protecting public health.

It is no surprise that health professionals are some of the most respected voices calling for climate solutions in their workplaces, their communities, and the halls of government. They are effective advocates who can influence policymakers, businesses, and hospital system leadership to deploy climate commitments and solutions aligned with the Paris Agreement.

Health Care Without Harm is committed to helping build that movement–a groundswell of health workers standing up for a broader, society-wide transition to a healthy, sustainable, and equitable world. We are at the forefront of mobilizing, engaging, and empowering the health sector to take climate action and lead the change by example.

We work with doctors, nurses, and public health professionals to advocate for healthy people on a healthy planet. The result is an emerging movement composed of growing networks and coalitions of hospitals, health systems, doctors, nurses, and public health professionals.

Whether it’s doctors and leading medical associations advocating for clean air and climate action in India, nurses mobilizing for a healthy climate in Europe and the United States, or a coalition of health professionals and policymakers seeking action on climate in Southeast Asia, we’re coalescing a powerful network that is part of a growing ecosystem working to protect public health from climate change. Together we can embark on a course to zero-emissions, resilient, and equitable health care.
