World Water Day 2020, on 22 March, is about water and climate change – and how the two are inextricably linked. Much of health care delivery in developing countries takes place in settings where there are inadequate or non-existent municipal water or treatment facilities.
We recognize the burden our community is under. Many of you are on the front lines of this unfolding crisis caring for people with COVID-19. From all the staff at Health Care Without Harm and Global Green and Healthy Hospitals, thank you for your tireless work during this unprecedented time. We have heard countless stories of hope, community, and compassion from across the health care sector. We are all humbled and inspired by you.
The theme for the third Global Recycling Day is “Recycling Heroes”, to recognize people, places and activities that showcase the important role recycling plays in creating a healthy planet.
