HEAL’s office in Poland opened in 2014, and focuses on health, energy and air quality. Air quality in Poland is one of the worst in the EU, and coal is the dominant source of electricity generation.

We raise awareness amongst health actors, society and decision makers through meetings, events, publications, letters and media work. We also actively engage in the Unmask My City and Europe Beyond Coal campaigns in Poland, to drive down lung and heart disease and health impacts on children in Poland.
