Background

On 10 April 2018, the WHO Regional Office for Europe launched a new webinar series on environment and health tools, organized jointly by the Regions for Health Network, the WHO European Centre for Environment and Health, and the Environment and Health Process Secretariat.

The aim of the webinar series is to present the range of tools, guidelines and briefs, which the WHO Regional Office for Europe has produced to support environmental leadership (including health-care professionals, health-service providers, researchers and policy-makers) at the subnational level. The material provides an overview of the most pressing environmental health challenges that European regions and cities are facing and presents methods of and opportunities for action in assessing and responding to them.
