HEAL’s work in the Balkan region focuses on air pollution, climate change, and coal power’s contribution to health damages. We work with the main health actors such as Public Health Institutes, Ministries of Health, health organisations, and grassroots initiatives working towards clean air.

We also run the Unmask My City campaign in the region, continuously raise awareness on the health toll caused by fossil fuel energy and call for fair, efficient and sustainable energy systems that will cut down air pollution and energy poverty in the region.
