| Planetary health is a field focused on characterizing the health impacts of human-caused disruptions of Earth's natural systems. Never before has humanity's footprint on the natural world been so large or so threatening to human health and wellbeing. The Planetary Health Alliance (PHA) works with a global consortium of 200+ institutions to facilitate interdisciplinary research collaborations, research-to-policy translations, educational initiatives, and international outreach and communications efforts, in support of our vision to bring humanity back onto a healthy and sustainable trajectory.|
The Planetary Health Alliance (PHA) seeks a Senior Program Coordinator to work with over 200 leading universities, government entities, multilaterals, journals, and NGOs around the world that currently participate in the alliance with the purpose of facilitating collaboration, ensuring smooth communication between member organizations and PHA staff, and identifying new strategic partners and opportunities for engagement and collaboration. Members of the Alliance work together in three intersecting domains of research, education, and policy and facilitate the flow of knowledge and practice from each of these domains to the others. By collaborating across these domains we aspire to support a global, transdisciplinary effort to understand the human health impacts of accelerating environmental change, train a new generation of practitioners to address these challenges, and inject human health as a critical outcome of local, regional, and global decision-making about how we manage Earth's natural systems. Increasingly, we also seek to support the growth of regional planetary health hubs around the world with regional expertise and strong connections to the local education, NGO, private sector, and policy sectors.
