A Children’s Environment and Health Strategy for the United Kingdom

The Children’s Environment and Health Action Plan for Europe (CEHAPE) is an initiative led by the World Health Organization Regional Office (WHO) for Europe. It was launched in June 2004 and signed by all 53 member states of the WHO European Region, including the UK. The aim of the CEHAPE is to protect the health of children and young people from environmental hazards.

The Health Protection Agency has been commissioned by the Department of Health, on behalf of the Interdepartmental Steering Group on Environment and Health, to evaluate children’s environmental health in the United Kingdom (UK) and develop recommendations as to how the UK can best meet its commitments under CEHAPE and further protect children’s health.

A Children’s Environment and Health Strategy for the UK was published on 24 March 2009. The Strategy provides a brief overview of children’s health in relation to their environment in the UK and recommends areas that should be taken forward in order to protect and promote children’s health and to meet the UK’s commitment to CEHAPE.
