About the PHA Regional Hubs Network
PHA is building a global planetary health community that crosses sectors, disciplines, generations, and geographies. To this end, the PHA is committed to expanding its membership and facilitating PHA regional hubs around the world. Independently led PHA regional hubs function as locally rooted communities of practice, stitching together PHA members within geographic clusters to collaboratively advance planetary health research, education, policy, and outreach pertinent to specific local contexts.
As momentum in planetary health continues to build around the world, PHA members have increasingly expressed interest in:
- Expanding regional collaboration and solution-building;
- Assessing local manifestations of planetary health challenges and sharing these case studies with the broader global community;
- Applying planetary health research to local policy, on-the-ground interventions, and public outreach efforts;
- Broadening regional participation in PHA initiatives.
PHA Regional Hubs 2.0
There is increasing demand among the planetary health community for intra and inter-regional collaboration. To expand capacity, the PHA has been working since 2019 with emergent leaders and Alliance Members to develop PHA Regional Hubs 2.0! Regional hubs will develop their own governance structure, strategy, and membership; hubs may even elect to create a "branch" to further regionalize. The PHA will facilitate inter-hub networking and lend ad hoc support as desired. Learn more about PHA Regional Hubs 2.0 in the Terms of Reference (TOR) document
