Solve pollution. Save lives. Protect the planet.

We’re proud to share that the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation has selected Pure Earth’s proposal to solve Madagascar’s pollution crisis as a Top 100 in its 100&Change competition

We are excited to be part of a partnership that holds such transformative power. Madagascar, a member of GAHP since 2016, was an early adopter of the Health and Pollution Action Planning process, bringing together a broad cross-section of government ministries, civil society and international organizations, to analyze the scientific data on pollution and health, and select a set of priorities for action. The sustained focus and commitment from this broad coalition to improve the health of all Malagasy children has propelled us to this promising point. — Richard Fuller, President, Pure Earth; GAHP board chair.

In Madagascar, where pollution causes nearly one third of premature deaths, we plan to implement the world’s first Health & Pollution Action Plan. Our collaboration with Indiana University and University of Birmingham has led to the formation of the Solve Pollution Network, a multidisciplinary environmental consortium of 22 organizations to implement priority solutions.
