Environmental health aims to create environments supportive of good health and minimize disease. This is done by controlling environmental factors impacting adversely on human health.
The Environmental Health Research Network is an assembly of various people all working in environmental health research from different institutions, organisations and agencies. This network will be representative of various stakeholders in environmental health research and will be a forum for open discussion.
The principle objective is to develop and coordinate research, information and practical resources on environmental health matters at all levels.
The primary goal is to bring environmental health researchers together to share knowledge and ideas.
