Better health through a healthy environment

This leaflet briefly describes HEAL’s mission, track record and accomplishments.

HEAL aims to bring significant, relevant and independent research findings to policy makers and the public in a format that fits their needs. Bringing the voice of the health community to policy makers is among HEAL’s key strategies.

It also describes HEAL’s strong track record in increasing public and expert engagement in EU and World Health Organization (WHO) debates and decision-making processes on environment and health.

Our commitment to our membership and our mission entails:

Monitoring policy within EU institutions to identify threats and opportunities for environment and health

Running advocacy campaigns to bring the voice of the health community to policy makers

Following policy-relevant research and making it accessible Facilitating public and stakeholder participation

Building capacity through publications, conferences, workshops, and training.
