The Catalyst Group, in an innovative collaboration with the Office of the Principal Scientific Adviser (PSA) to the Government of India, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), and the Rockefeller Foundation, has announced the launch of the Green Health Alliance (GHA) in New Delhi. The Alliance is set to focus on identifying and scaling up solutions to help reduce the carbon footprint of the health system and thereby minimise the negative health impacts of climate change.
Dr Parvinder Maini, Scientific Secretary, Office of Principal Scientific Adviser (PSA) to the Government of India, said, “We are pleased to extend our support to Green Health Alliance through various possibilities of partnerships. To scale up such partnership efforts, the division of Strategic Alliances is developing a collaboration platform, ‘Manthan’ centred around SDGs and took innovative solutions to scale. We would encourage all GHA partners to utilise this platform after it goes live.”
As an action-oriented community of diverse stakeholders like Swasti, Vrutti, Fuzhio, Boston Consulting Group (BCG), The Skoll Foundation, the Green Health Alliance will integrate private and public sector expertise to build strong and resilient health ecosystems through affirmative climate action. The focus of GHA includes the identification of proven climate-neutral solutions and support these to scale across the health ecosystem; and developing a credible platform to convene, ideate, and scale innovative solutions at the intersection of health ecosystem and climate impact.
