Meeting report

25–26 May 2017, Tallinn, Estonia

Scientific evidence of the negative impact on children’s health from exposure to a mixture of chemicals in the indoor environment is growing. Further action to mitigate the risks is needed. A workshop was organized in Tallinn, Estonia on 25–26 May 2017 to update knowledge of indoor chemicals and children’s health, share experience in assessing combined exposure risks and discuss the next steps towards healthier indoor environments in public settings for children. The workshop was attended by representatives of relevant national authorities and national experts from Estonia and Lithuania, as well as invited international experts. It is expected that the outcomes will guide planning aiming to minimize the
negative health impact of indoor air pollutants in target countries as well as in the other Member States in the WHO European Region.
