Dear friends,
The Federation has with very great sadness received a message that Eric Foskett died on the 7th of August.
The International Environmental Health community has thereby lost a loyal and true friend.
Eric Foskett was the man who was the originator of the Federation and who thereby contributed to increased global understanding.

All who knew him will never forget him.

All honour to his memory.

IFEH Project in Tanzania
The IFEH project to raise money to establish a library for the new degree course is going well but a more generous response to the IFEH Tanzania Library Appeal is still needed.

If, through this project, the average life expectancy at birth in Tanzania is in time raised to only 46 then we, with others, will have contributed to an astonishing 125 million years of life gain for its people. This project can be replicated in many other countries. The contribution that environmental health education and professional development can make to mankind in the developing world is quite simply staggering.
