I now work at the intersection of environment, health and justice. I've been in the space for nearly two decades, and my experience tells that the negative impacts of industrialization have outweighed the good. I've also in my work come across several individuals and groups who, despite all odds, go beyond their call of duty to serve their communities. I find health care professionals working in polluted places, as one such group who strive to do everything they can to protect their patients and communities from risk. For example, Meena, a health worker from Korba district in central India. Her job is to provide maternal care to pregnant women. However, Meena lives in a region that is surrounded by coal and power plants and is considered among the top five critically polluted places in India. So Meena also gives advice on how to protect the newborn children from the dangers of air pollution.
