We Need Your Input: Participate In GAHP’s Subcommittees!
Join us for an important opportunity to provide input into GAHP’s activities! All GAHP members and observers are invited to participate in four subcommittees – two of which are new, so read on!
The time commitment is small – only a 30-minute meeting once a month (via phone or GoToMeeting) and occasional email correspondences. Please email email@example.com to join a subcommittee or two!
The four subcommittees are:
- Communications: aims to continue the momentum of The Lancet Commission report, keep pollution and health in the public eye, and continue to build political support for investment. This group will also work on overall messaging and events (such as High Level Political Forum SDG, presentations at conferences or other events/forums).
- Health and Pollution Action Planning: aims to coordinate both the HPAP approach and HPAP activities amongst different GAHP members, and ensure similar approaches implemented by different agencies are not duplicative. This is a technical working group.
- Strategy/Policy: aims to improve strategic implementation of GAHP’s goal to raise the profile of pollution and health globally, with donor agencies, countries, and at the political level. This is GAHP’s “high-level think tank” so to speak.
- Pollution Metrics: aims to design pollution metrics and a global pollution observatory to assist the world to measure progress on pollution. This is a technical working group.
