Mobilising communities for building resilient health and environment partnerships


On December 11th, ahead of Universal Health Coverage (UHC) Day 2023, The George Institute hosted a panel discussion titled, Mobilising communities for environmental action and Universal Health Coverage: Building resilient health and environment partnerships, as part of the annual symposium of the National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) Global Health Research Centre (GHRC) for Environmental Change and NCDs. Partners and collaborators gathered in Indonesia one year after its launch at COP27 to engage in dialogue and reflect on progress, including planned activities for 2024 and to participate in a series of capacity-strengthening activities.  

A panel discussion chaired by Professor Christopher Millett co-principal investigator of the NIHR GHRC, and convened experts in public health, environmental change, and community empowerment to discuss action-oriented steps for building resilient health and environment partnerships; also providing a platform to reflect on whether the 28th Conference of Parties (COP28) created an enabling environment for inclusive participation and decision making as the final negotiations ensued. Panellists discussed innovations in the NCD-climate intersection ecosystem and learnings from community engagement approaches adopted in their work.
