EcoHealth Connect: Advancing Equitable Healthcare and Environmental Stewardship

Through our EcoHealth Connect initiative, we aim to integrate environmental consciousness into healthcare operations, leverage the use of technology for positive impact, and advocate for sustainable solutions that address both health disparities and environmental challenges.

 

Objectives:

  1. Sustainable Healthcare Delivery: We collaborate with healthcare organisations to develop and implement sustainable practices throughout the healthcare delivery system. We promote energy efficiency, waste reduction, and environmentally friendly practices that enhance patient care while minimizing the ecological footprint of healthcare operations.
  2. Technology for Equitable Health Access: We promote and support harnessing the power of technology to bridge healthcare access gaps and promote equity in healthcare access. We promote the use of digital health solutions, telemedicine platforms, and innovative data-driven tools to connect underserved communities with essential healthcare services, regardless of geographical, socio-economic or other barriers.
  3. Environmental Health Education: Through our blogs, white papers and presentations, we aim to educate healthcare professionals, patients, and the wider community about the connections between environmental issues and human health.
  4. Sustainable Supply Chain Management: We collaborate with healthcare suppliers and supply partners to ensure sustainable sourcing practices that prioritise environmentally friendly products and services.
  5. Research and Innovation for Sustainable Health Solutions: We can conduct research and evaluation of efforts made to develop sustainable healthcare solutions. We aim to measure and report progress towards our sustainability goals, sharing achievements and lessons learned to inspire further action and accountability.
  6. New Models of Healthcare: We support projects that advance sustainable healthcare models, preventive care, and community resilience. We encourage the integration of environmental considerations into healthcare technologies, treatments, and practices to address both health equity and ecological challenges. 
  7. Advocacy and Policy Engagement: Advocate for policies that promote environmental sustainability and protection as a public health imperative as well as promote health equity, address social determinants of health, and ensure equitable access to healthcare.
  8. Community Engagement: We aim to foster a culture of sustainability within our company and in the organisations we work with, and engage with local communities to address health disparities, environmental education, and community well-being.
  9. Collaboration for Collective Impact: We believe that collaboration is at the heart of environmental issues, fostering partnerships that leverage collective expertise, resources, and networks to amplify our impact and effect systemic change. We pledge to support collaborations with healthcare organizations, nonprofits, government agencies, and technology partners to drive collective action towards sustainable healthcare and environmental stewardship. 

 

Through the EcoHealth Connect, we want to be a small part in creating a healthcare ecosystem that promotes health equity, leverages technology for positive change, and addresses environmental challenges. By integrating sustainability into our consultancy services and advocating for a healthier future, we aim to inspire and empower others to join us in building a more equitable, environmentally conscious healthcare system.
