Health Care Without Harm (HCWH) is an international coalition of hospitals and healthcare systems, academic institutions, and environmental organizations working to reduce health care's ecological footprint through research, education, and advocacy. HCWH helps local, national, and international decision makers see the link between climate change and poor health. The organization focuses on solutions developed in partnership with medical and associated sectors to reduce healthcare's carbon footprint by shifting towards a low-carbon supply chain and toxic free products. HCWH also works to activate healthcare professionals as leading advocates about the role the sector plays in making communities more resilient to and prepared for the climate crisis. The health sector's political, economic, and moral clout can help forge a transition towards a less-carbon intensive economy. General operating support is helping HCWH maintain core staff and operations globally.

Health Care Without Harm (HCWH) is an international coalition of hospitals and healthcare systems, academic institutions, and environmental organizations working to reduce health care's ecological footprint through research, education, and advocacy. The 2015 Lancet Commission on Health and Climate Change argues that tackling climate change could be the greatest global health opportunity of the 21st century. HCWH helps local, national, and international decision makers see the link between climate change and poor health and drive solutions at scale. Strategic investment in the nexus between climate change and health leverages the health sector's political, economic, and moral clout to help forge a transition away from fossil fuels to clean, renewable energy in order to protect public health. General operating support is helping HCWH maintain core staff and operations globally.
