Our Mission

The Planetary Health Alliance is a consortium of over 200 universities, non-governmental organizations, research institutes, and government entities from around the world committed to understanding and addressing global environmental change and its health impacts. To support the rapid growth of a robust, interdisciplinary field of planetary health, the PHA is focused on: 

1) Building a global planetary health community that crosses sectors, disciplines, generations, and geographies;

2) Facilitating the training of the next generation of planetary health leaders through the development of mentorship opportunities and foundational open-access educational resources from primary to university levels; and

3) Mainstreaming planetary health science through broad public outreach and direct engagement with policymakers.

Our History

Launched with the support of the Rockefeller Foundation in 2016, the Planetary Health Alliance (PHA) has been integral to the rapid growth of planetary health through its engagement in advancing planetary health research, education, and policy. Now a highly effective coalition of 200+ member institutions from 40+ countries, the PHA is supported by a Secretariat based at Harvard University and a Steering Committee of international experts.

Our Members

Planetary Health Alliance members consist of universities, research institutes, non-governmental organizations, and government entities around the world who are on the cutting-edge of planetary health. We invite new member institutions to join the PHA based on the relevance of their work to planetary health, an existing record of success, and their demonstration of a commitment to ongoing collaboration in planetary health. Members have the opportunity to formally participate in the PHA’s governance, helping to inform its strategy and deciding how the PHA will externally represent itself as a consortium. Join us.
