Welcome to the

Women Leaders for Planetary Health

What we do

We empower women to lead Planetary Health solutions at the frontlines of development in the Global South.

About us

Launched at the UN Climate Summit in December 2019, we strive to achieve the following: develop women's leadership in the evolving field of Planetary Health, improve women's health, and safeguard a clean environment to leave no one behind.

Here at Women Leaders for Planetary Health, we’re committed to investing our expertise and resources in order to further achieve our cause. We’ve been supporting our community members in a variety of ways and measuring our success not by monetary size, but by more qualitative measurements, such as the scale and effectiveness of our efforts and the quality of our network.

                  Just imagine what we can achieve together!
