As Pure Earth works to resolve the pollution crisis in low- and middle-income countries, it has become abundantly clear that such efforts will not succeed without active support from governments and the public opinion they respond to. Advocacy is, therefore, fundamental to Pure Earth’s mission and mandate, and is what led to the creation of the Global Alliance on Health and Pollution (GAHP).
GAHP envisions a world where the health of present and future generations, especially children and pregnant women, is safe from toxic pollution. The Global Alliance on Health and Pollution (GAHP) is a collaborative body of more than 60 members and dozens of observers that advocate for resources and solutions to pollution problems. GAHP was formed because international and national level actors/ agencies recognize that a collaborative, multi-stakeholder, multi-sectoral approach is necessary and critical to deal with the global pollution crisis and resulting health and economic impacts.
