Since the adoption of the European Charter on environment and health, at Frankfurt-am-Main in 1989, the countries of the WHO European Region have been placing greater emphasis on the role of their environmental health services in the protection of public health and the environment.
The introduction of the Environmental Health Action Plan for Europe, at Helsinki in 1994, futher enhanced the need for strong national and local environmental health services.
The WHO Regional Office for Europe has been deeply involved in working with its memberstates in producing a wide range of guidance instruments to assist them in reforming their environmental health services and developing their capacities in environmental health management.
This guidance is seen as vital to the reform process, as it will assist countries in developing and strengthening national environmental health services, and will promote the harmonization and integration of national and international activities.
The projects that resulted in this guidance were requested by Member States when gaps in the capacities of their environmental health services became apparent.
