Rx for Climate
A Global Alliance for Climate-Smart
Who We Are
Rx for Climate is an independent web-based community designed to support environmentally sustainable pharmacy practice and to promote pharmacists' role in mitigating the impacts of climate change on human health. This forum enables pharmacists, students, and pharmacy educators to access high-quality evidence and practice-relevant resources, and encourages collaboration and sharing of ideas. Our goal is to empower pharmacy practitioners to minimize the environmental impacts of healthcare while optimizing patient outcomes.
Our Mission & Vision:
We are committed to:
Promoting evidence-based environmental stewardship of pharmaceuticals and healthcare resources;
Recognizing the human health impacts and associated injustices of climate change and environmental damage and the professional obligation of pharmacists to protect human health by acting to limit these; and
Enabling sharing of challenges and best practices, and collaboration both within the pharmacy profession and across disciplines.
"Climate change is the greatest global health threat facing the world in the 21st century, but it is also the greatest opportunity to redefine the social and environmental determinants of health."
