Recognizing the need to use a multi-stakeholder approach for addressing pollution and its health impacts and putting it on the global agenda as a priority issue, GAHP was formed by Pure Earth in 2012. The Alliance was started with representatives from The World Bank, UNEP, UNDP, UNIDO, Asian Development Bank, the European Commission, and Ministries of Environment and Health of many low and middle-income countries (LMICs) to formulate strategies to address pollution and health at scale. GAHP was incorporated as a foundation in 2019 in Geneva, Switzerland.
Today GAHP works across the globe assisting low and middle income countries to prioritize health outcomes by addressing pollution through its Health and Pollution Action Plans (HPAPs) and solutions planning and resource mobilisation. GAHP equally focuses on building public, technical and financial support to increase awareness on pollution and promote scientific research and track progress around it.
