About IFEH


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.

The Federation is an organisation whose full members are national associations representing the interests of environmental health professionals throughout the World.  Applications forms for membership can be downloaded from the member section.

Other organisations with an interest in environmental health may become associate members.  Organisations, which are involved in the educational field (for instance Universities training environmental health professionals) are eligible to become Academic Associate Members.  Other bodies with an interest in environmental health (such as regional associations, NGOs, etc) may become Associate Members. Applications forms for these classes of membership can be downloaded from the
