Sixth Ministerial Conference on Environment and Health
13.06.2017 - 15.06.2017 | Ostrava, Czech Republic
The ministerial conferences of the European Environment and Health Process provide a unique intersectoral policy platform bringing together relevant sectors and partners to shape policies and actions on environment and health, support the implementation of effective evidence-based policies and advance actions on environment, health and well-being in the WHO European Region.
Defining Europe’s environment and health priorities in the 21st century
Almost one and a half million deaths per year in the WHO European Region are caused by environmental risks that could be avoided and/or eliminated. There is therefore urgent need to continue and strengthen efforts addressing the leading environmental determinants of ill health. These include:
- air pollution;
- inadequate water and sanitation services;
- hazardous chemicals;
- waste and contaminated sites; and
- climate change.
