Public health

Environmental health has an important and unique contribution to make to improving public health and reducing health inequalities. The CIEH is working to ensure that this contribution is fully developed and brought to bear, both in support of government policy and in campaigning for necessary additional measures. 

We believe that making environmental health concerns heard is essential to the achievement of long-term improvements in the health of the population, in creating and maintaining sustainable communities, and in addressing the health consequences of environmental degradation and global changes in climate, habitat, energy supplies and other key stressors.
