HEAL Annual Review 2011

While 2011 has kept EU leaders busy with the financial crisis and setting the EU back on an economic recovery path, there was evidence of a growing recognition among politicians that changes in environment policy can create better health. There has also been evidence of growing support for the environmental approach to better health within the wider community.

The HEAL Annual review 2011 highlights our accomplishments and collaborations with member organisations and partners in all of our different policy areas (environment & health, children’s health, chemicals, pesticides/biocides, air quality and climate change and others).

Most importantly, it showcases how environmental action results in better health and in economic growth and puts a spotlight on the win-win scenarios that make Europe more sustainable while bringing down rates of cancer, heart disease, obesity, diabetes or asthma.
