The Federation works to disseminate knowledge concerning environmental health
and promote co-operation between countries where environmental health issues are
transboundary. It promotes the interchange of people working in this sector and
the exchange of Member's publications of a scientific and technical nature.
Amongst other things, the Federation seeks to provide means of exchanging
information and experience on environmental health, to hold Congresses and
meetings to discuss subjects relevant to environmental health science and
administration, to represent the interests of environmental health to state
agencies, national governments and international organisations and to promote
field studies of environmental health control.
