At IDE we are proud to be part of local, national and international communities working together towards improving the environment for humanity.
Planetary Health Alliance
The Planetary Health Alliance is a consortium of universities, NGOs, and other partners committed to advancing planetary health — an interdisciplinary field focused on characterizing the human health impacts of human-caused disruptions of Earth’s natural systems.
IDE are privileged and happy to be represented amongst the global consortium of NGOs, universities, medical associations and environmental groups working together on Planetary Health.
Irish Forum of Global Health
From April 2019 we have joined forces with IFGH, with whom we share numerous overlapping goals as climate chaos affects both national and international health.
“The Irish Forum for Global Health (IFGH) is an independent network of people from different backgrounds, sectors and disciplines who are concerned with health inequities and issues that impact on the health and development of populations at a global level, with a particular commitment to those living in middle and low- income countries.”
Health Care Without Harm
As of January 2019 – which coincided with our monthly theme of healthcare sustainability – we are proud to be affiliated with the international group Health Care Without Harm.
“Health Care Without Harm (HCWH) Europe is a non-profit European membership organisation of hospitals, healthcare systems, healthcare professionals, local authorities, research/academic institutions and environmental and health organisations.”
Clinicians for Planetary Health
“The Planetary Health Alliance is working with a number of partners to develop and disseminate informational resources to clinicians and their patients that communicate planetary health and provide key areas of intervention.”

Current members include development, environmental, youth and faith based organisations. Vision – That Ireland makes a rapid and just transition to a carbon free future.
Plant Based Doctors Ireland
At IDE we work and collaborate with organizations who promote health, sustainability and environment. With the launch of Lancet EAT in January 2019 and a system change regarding the interconnected links of food and health, we are delighted to team up with Irish GPs with the first conference held in March 2019 –
A team of Irish-based healthcare professionals who are passionate about spreading the knowledge of plant-based nutrition and its benefits within our communities. We believe a whole food plant-based diet can not only prevent but also reverse many chronic diseases. Our aim is to promote the benefits of a plant-based diet to other healthcare professionals, so that they can educate and empower their patients and offer real solutions to chronic diseases.
Association of Medical Students Ireland (AMSI)
Through one of our committee members, we are happy to be associated with AMSI and share our resources and thoughts with the future generations of doctors
AMSI brings people together to exchange, discuss and initiate projects to create a healthier world. It gives its members the skills and resources to be health leaders. It advocates for pressing issues that matter to shape the world we want. And it does deliver: our campaigns and our activities positively impact the physicians-to-be and the communities they serve.
