Our Planet, Our Health

Addressing the public health impacts of human-induced environmental change

The impacts of accelerating climatic disruption, land degradation, growing water scarcity, fisheries degradation, biodiversity loss, and pollution threaten the global public health gains of the last several decades and are likely to represent the dominant threats to humanity's health going forward. Our work is focused on the inextricable linkages between our health and that of our environment.
