For the last thousands of years, the planet Earth is providing a hospitable environment for humans and other organisms to flourish. The resources of the earth and the natural greenhouse effect provide a comfortable environment and the presence of water helps humans to survive and perform their activities.
Every creature depends on a healthy environment to achieve good health and attain proper physical, social, emotional, and psychological well-being.
Human health and environmental health are inextricably linked. Our collective resilience, well-being, nourishment, and capacity to avert disease are fully connected to the food we consume, the water we drink, the air we breathe, and the resources provided by the earth.
Caring for Our Planet is Caring for Humanity
The climate crisis is the greatest threat of the 21st century and it threatens both the biodiversity and health of humans. The health impact of the climate crisis is felt globally and increasing global warming is the major cause of tropical diseases and the spreading toxic blue green algae.
The future scenarios are in our hands and preserving a healthy planet can guarantee human health. Whether for food, a stable climate, or directly for livelihoods, all people rely on the conditions for a decent life that are provided by healthy ecosystems.
Any type of climate change poses a major threat to our health and tackling climate change by reducing harmful carbon emission will improve health and saves lives. Reducing emissions will mean fewer cases of asthma, cancer, and heart disease. The protection of climate equals health protection and in our daily lives, we must strive to keep both planet and people health healthy, by following more sustainable living patterns and smart consumption modes.
Being a healthcare organization, we always spread the message that protection of environment and planet is the protection of our health and future.
To create a healthy and more resilient future we must make a strong commitment to save the planet by reducing carbon emissions, promoting afforestation, protecting natural resources, preventing wastage, controlling overpopulation, protect flora and fauna, and less dependency on fossil fuels.
A single step alone will not help to make the planet healthy, and ambition is followed by coordination, and taking effective action for nature could help to shape a healthier future for people and the planet.
Healthy Planet! Healthy Lives!
