Pakistan Launch of the Planetary Health Commission Report


Heartfile hosted the Pakistan launch of The Rockefeller Foundation-Lancet Commission Report on Planetary Health in Islamabad on July 24, 2015.  The report, Safeguarding Human Health in the Anthropocene Epoch, provides the “first ever comprehensive examination of evidence showing how the health and well-being of future generations is being jeopardized by the unprecedented degradation of the planet’s natural resources and ecological systems”. Further details about the initiative can be accessed here.

Subsequent to the global launch on July 16 in New York at the Rockefeller Foundation, other launches were held in Los Angeles and South Africa while still others are planned in Chile, China, Kenya, Australia, Abu Dhabi and Malaysia, each hosted by a respective commissioner. The Pakistan launch, part of the series of these regional launches, was hosted by Dr. Sania Nishtar, one of the 15 commissioners on the Planetary Health Commission.
