Hazardous chemicals are all around us: the last WHY newsletter deals with ways to cope with risks from harmful substances

The fifth newsletter from journalists in the WHY network discusses problems and possible solutions related to chemicals. An editorial from WHO/Europe indicates the public health priorities and how  WHO is tackling this challenge. The WHY is an initiative coordinated by WHO/Europe and its partners within the framework of the Fifth Environment and Health, held in Parma in March 2010.

The newsletter features articles from the winners of the WHO Media Awards, assigned at the Parma Conference, who in turns have the role of editor-in-chief.
