WONCA, through our Working Party on the Environment, and in partnership with the Planetary Health Alliance, has developed and endorsed a document on planetary health – “Declaration calling for family doctors of the world to act on planetary health”. The document can be accessed at this link:

The declaration explains:

      • WHY we should be worried about this
      • WHAT effects it is having on the health of our patients
      • WHAT we as family doctors can DO to mitigate effects

We hope that you and your members will find the declaration useful and powerful as an advocacy tool
