In celebration of Health Care Without Harm's 20th anniversary, we have launched a new film showcasing health care's mission to protect people.

20 Years In, We're Just Getting Started

When Health Care Without Harm started 20 years ago, its founders hardly knew anyone who worked in the health care sector.

Two decades later, as we celebrate our anniversary this September, our co-founder and President Gary Cohen reflects on the impact of our work around the world and the challenges and opportunities for health care in the 21st century.

Do No Harm Showcases Health Care's Role to Protect the Planet and Public Health

Once upon a time, a small group of doctors, nurses, and health care leaders realized that, in violation of the Hippocratic Oath to “first, do no harm”, some hospital practices were harming patients and the planet. This small effort grew into a global movement advocating for change on the critical environmental health issues of our time. 

As part of our 20th anniversary celebration, Health Care Without Harm is proud to release Do No Harm, an inspiring short film telling the story of the global environmental health movement.
