WHO Collaborating Centres Network for Children's Environmental Health

The UQ Collaborating Centre is part of a wider network of centres for Children's Environmental Health. The network aims to prevent disease and injury and promote children's well-being through healthier environments.

The Network's overall goal is to improve children's health by preventing or reducing environmental threats through:

  • Building evidence and research capacities in global children's environmental health.
  • Coordinating and conducting collaborative children's environmental health research.
  • Raising awareness of global children's environmental health issues through improved education and communication strategies.
  • Developing interventions aimed at capacity building, reducing exposure, and preventing or decreasing the burden of disease for children.
