Our Mission

Who we are 

The Planetary Health Alliance is a consortium of over 95 dedicated universities, NGOs, government entities, research institutes, and other partners around the world committed to advancing planetary health. 


what we do 

The Planetary Health Alliance forges collaboration across a broad array of scientific disciplines, as well as with decision-makers, movement builders, and local communities, to build a rigorous evidence base for informing policy solutions aimed at optimizing both human health and environmental stewardship objectives. We work to support the growth of the planetary health field by:

  • Connecting the global planetary health community via an Annual Meeting and virtual forums;
  • Facilitating the training of the next generation of scientists through publicly accessible educational resources and a postdoctoral fellowship;
  • Communicating planetary health science for education and policy applications; and
  • Applying planetary health science directly to inform policy and practice.


Funded by

Rockefeller Foundation

The Rockefeller Foundation aims to achieve equitable growth by expanding opportunity for more people in more places worldwide, and to build resilience by helping them prepare for, withstand, and emerge stronger from acute shocks and chronic stresses. In today’s dynamic and interconnected world, The Rockefeller Foundation has a unique ability to address the emerging challenges facing humankind through innovation, intervention and influence in order to shape agendas and inform decision making. The Rockefeller Foundation is pleased to be helping to lead the call for a new health discipline—planetary health— one that goes beyond the boundaries of our existing global health framework to take into consideration the natural systems upon which human health depends.
