Help us shape and share our stories in Poland

HEAL has been active in Poland for the past ten years, to engage the Polish health and medical sector, to advocate for more health protective and prevention policies, and to communicate the latest science on how environmental pollution and climate change affect people’s health.

HEAL’s track record on communication includes launching evidence and shaping public debates on the health cost of air pollution (especially from coal power generation, transport), the facilitation of statements from the health and medical sector (including Doctors for Climate – Lekarze dla klimatu) as well as amplifying the voices of patients and others most at risk from pollution. Our message is often featured in leading national media, shared with the public via podcasts, and amplified through dedicated quotes by Polish health professionals.

…   is a native speaker of Polish and an outstanding writer and editor
