Steps towards implementation

Albania has a National and Health Action Plan (NEHAP) to implement commitments on children’s environment and health. The Ministry of Health has been in the leading role, with the Department of Primary Health Care covering environmental health. The director of that Department heads up the working group in charge of the implementation of NEHAP.

Albania does not intend to prepare another document, a separate CEHAPE, but the two processes will flow in parallel.

A priority for Albania is the development of the Environmental Health Indicator System, based on the recommendations made by WHO, and the set of indicators presented at the Budapest Conference.
