ABOUT US

Health In Harmony (HIH) is an international non-profit working at the intersection of human well-being and ecosystem integrity, a field known as Planetary Health. Our goal is a common one: to reverse the rampant deforestation of tropical rainforests. But our method is unique: we engage with rainforest communities to design solutions that are beneficial to those communities, the local ecosystem, and the planet. Health In Harmony has a long-term presence in West Kalimantan, Borneo, with replication sites in Madagascar and Brazil and a scaling plan that is currently underway. We are a team of passionate individuals excited about working together and committed to supporting each other as we pursue our vision: Healthy People. Healthy Forests. Healthy Planet.
