First issue of WHY newsletter presents new perspectives for environmental health

Welcome to the debut of the World Health Youth (WHY) Communication Network newsletter!

The first newsletter from journalists in the network focuses on the legacy from Parma and how it is expected to be put forward by WHO/Europe’s governing body. The WHY is an initiative coordinated by WHO/Europe and its partners within the framework of the Fifth Ministerial Conference on Environment and Health, held in Parma in March 2010.

Ministers of health meeting at the sixtieth session of the WHO Regional Committee for Europe in Moscow, 13-16 September 2010, will follow up on the outcomes of the Parma Conference through a Resolution on the future of the European environment and health process.
