The Story Behind Planetary Health Annual Meeting (PHAM)

The Planetary Health Annual Meeting (PHAM) is a global convening of scientists, policymakers, educators, young leaders, the private sector, and concerned planetary citizens. Held every 18 months, it aims to connect this global community, seek solutions for the grand challenges facing humanity, and provide tools and drivers to support systemic change. Its past five events have brought together thousands of leaders from over 130 countries in gatherings held in the United States, Scotland, and Brazil.

Recognizing the key role that Asia plays in Planetary Health challenges and solutions, PHAM 2024 will be the first of its kind to be held in Southeast Asia. Malaysia is proud to be the host of PHAM 2024 with the theme of “From Evidence to Action: Confronting Reality”, led by the Sunway Centre for Planetary Health at Sunway University, Kuala Lumpur.

Catalyzing Action in
Planetary Health

The 2024 Planetary Health Summit and 6th Annual Meeting will acknowledge and internalize the fact that its roots in academia now position it well to be transformative, and that to rise to this challenge Planetary Health must become transdisciplinary and grounded on partnerships and collaboration with other health-based solutions movements, such as One Health and Environmental Health, and fully joined up with and engaged in regional and global processes. This includes those being managed by regional and sub-regional organizations, and the United Nations such as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and successor arrangements, summits called by the Secretary-General, such as the 2024 Summit for the Future, and work led by the UN’s Resident Coordinators at country level.

In this 6th installation of the Planetary Health Summit and Annual Meeting, the message will be clear: For science to be transformational, it must be crafted for action and communicated in ways that the public can understand, and decision-makers can act on.

PHAM: Uniting Global Leaders for Planetary Health Solutions

Planetary
Health Roadmap

The primary outcome document from the conference will be a global roadmap which will translate the wealth of evidence-based knowledge so that it can be used by Planetary Health leaders and stakeholders to influence policies and behavioural norms more directly and effectively.

 

Participants in the PHAM 2024 preparatory process are invited to support the development of this roadmap between June 2023 and January 2024. They will be supported by a drafting team. The final version of the roadmap will be assembled in February and March and circulated prior to the April summit in Malaysia. The roadmap will be focused on these four focus areas: 

Reimagining governance institutions fit for the 21st century and beyond

Planetary Health Summit 2024 and 6th Annual Meeting FAQ

What is Planetary Health?
A Planetary Health approach to human development recognises that humankind has made significant progress in many ways with the industrial, green and technological revolutions as examples. But these development gains are now being offset by increasingly obvious disruption to the health of the planet. We can see this in depleted biodiversity, changing land use and cover, a massive increase in air pollution, shortages of natural resources, and the resulting damage to our lived environment most clearly demonstrated through recent pandemic and disease outbreaks and the climate emergency.
