  1. Use of exposure databases for status and trends analysis.

    Article - En anglais

    Exposure databases are useful for monitoring status and trends in environmental health.

    However, other supporting data are usually needed to infer human exposure or internal dose.

    Program planning and evaluation, environmental health surveillance, epidemiologic research, and contributions to international efforts are four major purposes for monitoring environmental exposure status and trends.

    Although databases play an important role in monitoring human exposure, certain methodological problems need to be overcome.

    The work group developed six criteria for meeting information needs for human exposure assessment.
