World Environmental Health Day 2013

The date for World Environmental Health Day was chosen in 2010 by the International Federation of Environmental Health. The first day was commemorated in 2011 in Indonesia.
The theme of 2011 was ‘Air Quality’, 2012, ‘Building for the Future’ and for 2013 is ‘Emerging Environmental Health Risks and Challenges for Tomorrow’.
