The GCCHE is a global network of health professions schools and programs that aims to:
- Obtain commitments from health professions schools throughout the world to educate their students on the health impacts of climate change and bring together member institutions to share best scientific and educational practices for doing so;
- Develop a core global knowledge set on the health impacts of climate change that all graduates of health professions schools should possess, as well as model curricula that member institutions can utilize for this purpose;
- Build a pipeline of health professionals who focus their work on the health impacts of climate change; and,
- Support the development of global academic partnerships to foster mutual learning, particularly in under- resourced countries.
