Medics 4 Clean Air
Medics for Clean Air is a coalition of doctors, nurses and other medical professionals, supported by the European Public Health Alliance, who are speaking out about the continuing impact of air pollution on public health. We are calling for sustainable actions from politicians and businesses at European, national and cities level to clean the air we breathe.
This campaign is open to everyone who is a healthcare professional, active and non-active (students and retired people), including physicians, surgeons, nurses, dentists, midwives, psychologists, psychiatrists, pharmacists, researchers etc. Add your voice to our growing community of medical professionals who believe we all have the right to breathe clean air and it’s time for change.
