About

At Global Health Matters we seek to inspire everyone to recognise the link between human health and the planet’s health – and we can together make a real difference.

This website is now accessible in over 30 different languages.

“Global Health…from Planet to People…we can all make a difference” is our simple message

Physical and mental health issues are sustainability issues, and affect how individuals and communities relate to their environment. The state of local environments will affect the health of individuals living in them. Starving communities will adversely affect their local environments to survive. Human and global ecological matters are directly interlinked.

We think that sustainability professionals…and others…should break out of the traditional ‘silo thinking’ and broaden their ideas and thinking about the real consequences of our actions. We are shining a light on a wide range of global health issues and solutions. We are helping you seek ‘win-win’ solutions that help both the planet and people.

The ‘Global Health’ website is promoted by the Institution of Sustainability Professionals .
