Twinning arrangements

The Internationalt Federation of Environmental Health is operating different twinning arrangement.

They can be divided in two groups: Type 1 and type 2 twinning:

Type 1 Twinning

Type 1.
Twinning in the sense of exchange of expertise and professionals. 

There is now an agreement between the national associations within the IFEH, opening the possibility for the private members of the national associations to swap office and chair for a period of up to two or three weeks.

So if you are a private member of one of the 37 IFEH member organisations you now have this opportunity to pay a technical visit to another country for a period of 2 to 3 weeks. The visit will be hosted by the IFEH member organisation in the specific country.

The IFEH is working on that each member organisation appoints a contact person in regard to this kind of twinning. It is the idea that you in the first place contact the contact person in your own country and the contact person will afterward make contact to the wanted destination of yours and try to set up the needed and specific agreements.

Until this list of of special twinning contact persons is finalized you are advised to get in touch
with the normal contact person in your country whose name appears as the contact for that organisation. See the member page.
