Steps towards implementation

Cyprus is developing a National Children’s Environment and Health Action Plan. The Ministry of Health has the key promoting and coordinating role in the process of CEHAPE, the overall responsibility for its effective implementation and for reporting at the next Ministerial Conference in 2007. A National Committee on Environment and Children’s Health (NCECH) has been appointed to coordinate and promote actions related to the Budapest outcomes.

This committee has the responsibility for developing a national children’s environment and health action plan. The committee is multidisciplinary, with members from the government, the private sector, and other specialists in the fields of children’s health, chemicals, the environment and education.
