WHO handbook “Planning to protect children against hazards”

In spring 2006, the World Health Organisation (WHO) published a booklet to offer an accurate view of what is the Children’s Environment and Health Action Plan for Europe (CEHAPE), endorsed at Budapest in June 2004 by ministers of Health and Environment from across the European Region, and why it is needed.

The booklet is for stakeholders working nationally or locally on public health, the environment or other relevant sectors, who may be involved in preparing and implementing national plans to reduce children’s environmental exposures.

Entitled “Planning to protect children against hazards”, the handbook explains the main environmental risk factors, what commitments were made by governments in Budapest, what the Regional Priority Goals are, and how to use communication. Moreover, it includes interesting case studies from countries.
