Description:
The European member States of the World Health Organisation (WHO) have agreed to develop, for their respective countries, a National Environmental Health Action Plan (NEHAP) which, in turn, will fonn the basis for an Environmental Health Action Plan for Europe (EEHAP). While there are many instances of sectoral plans relating to health and the environment this is the ftrst attempt at preparing an overall national plan specifically addressing environmental health. Consequently, this is largely uncharted territory and a working group from the various Departments affected was established to prepare the necessary ground work. This report can be regarded as a first attempt to set out the parameters of a NEHAP for Ireland. It is now being issued widely to the various interested parties for comment. The working group was conscious that, in defining the scope of the draft initial plan, it was not possible to deal exhaustively with all the issues involved in environmental health but it has attempted to identify and address the key issues which should be central to such a plan. The group feels that the initial NEHAP should be framed on this basis and that, subsequently, the plan can be amplified to deal in greater detail with the specific issues involved
