Health Care Without Harm (HCWH) works to transform the health sector worldwide so that it reduces its environmental footprint and becomes a community anchor for sustainability and a leader in the global movement for environmental health and justice. With partners around the world, HCWH is working to implement ecologically sound and healthy alternatives to health care practices that pollute the environment and contribute to disease. In recent years, HCWH has also established itself as a world leader on climate change and health, developing tools and strategies that can help hospitals and health systems move toward low-carbon health care delivery and broadening the climate debate to include a powerful public health dimension. With offices on three continents and partners around the world, HCWH is leveraging the health sector's expertise, purchasing power, political clout, workforce development, and moral authority to create the conditions for healthy people, communities, and the environment.
Working closely with HCWH, Practice Greenhealth is the leading nonprofit membership and network organization for sustainable health care, delivering environmental solutions to more than 1,100 members throughout the United States.
