INCHES: 3rd International Conference highlights urgency to protect children’s health from environmental threats

Over 100 participants gathered in Lodz, Poland, to discuss the latest science on how air pollution or chemicals impact children’s health. HEAL organised a workshop on the science to policy transfer, where participants identified many opportunities to raise children’s environmental health concerns with EU decision-makers in the next months. A key point is also to continue to raise awareness with health professionals themselves. WHO has just updated their training manuals on this.
