Our Mission

The Planetary Health Alliance is a consortium of universities, NGOs, government entities, and other partners committed to advancing planetary health. 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 scholars 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 policy makers.

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 160+ member institutions from over 40 countries, the PHA is supported by a Secretariat based at Harvard University and a Steering Committee of international experts.

Our Members:
