Nadda launches ‘Centre for Environmental Health’

New Delhi, May 19 (UNI) Union Health Minister J P Nadda today launched the ‘Centre for Environmental Health’ to assess the impact of environment related problems due to climate change, air pollution, pesticide use and sanitation on health here.
It is a joint initiative of the Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI) and Tata Institute of Social Science (TISS) and it will conduct policy relevant research across a range of environmental health issues across the country.
It will also promote evidence informed policy making for public health.
Mr Nadda said the Central government will work in close co-ordination with the Centre and noted that the research will help in policy-making and sensitising people about the issue.
He said the research and capacity will be very helpful to the Government to tackle environment related problems.
“Whatever inputs we get from the Centre, we will go forward in that direction and certainly work towards making a difference,” Mr Nadda added.
Former Union Minister Jairam Ramesh, who was also present along with the minister said there was a need to look at the environmental issues from public health perspective to get support at the highest level and create larger research community in order to bring this community into the mainstream of policy making.
Mr Ramesh said the research component of the Centre is going to be an important aspect for the government to follow.
To develop pathways for better implementation of the eco-friendly policies the Centre will also establish a policy engagement platform with regular meetings with the civil society, academia, government and the private sector.
