This publication was prepared by CAREC Environment and Health Program which aims to inform and raise awareness and knowledge among interested stakeholders on the interrelationship between environment and medicine. These publications are primarily developed to respond to numerous requests from representatives of Central Asian countries working on environmental and health issues in the region. The narrative style, language and terminology of the information have been designed for a wider audience. All information presented in these publications is based on the CAREC’s expertise and experience, as well as data from World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) and other international organizations.
In the next issues of CAREC Environment and Health Program publications, we will focus on selected environmental health issues, including air quality and health, water and health, waste and health, sustainable development goals (SDGs), etc.
