Steps towards implementation

The National Children’s Environmental Health Action Plan document was finalized by the end of 2005. It includes the data that should be collected and the actions specific to children’s environmental health and it will be submitted for approval in February 2006.

The final issue of the draft document is on the website of the Ministry of Health. When it is approved, the final plan will be posted on the ministry website and will be translated into English. After this, the NEHAP that was prepared in 2001, will be revised.
