When: July 25, 2013 (2:30 PM Eastern)

Topic Environmental Health
Activity: Roundtable on Environmental Health Sciences, Research, and Medicine
Board: Board on Population Health and Public Health Practice

With the Millennium Development Goals expiring in 2015, the global community seeks a path forward that continues the progress made over the last 15 years. At the heart of this is careful consideration and development of new indicators and goals that will drive human advancement. In July 2012, a high-level panel of eminent persons which included representatives of governments, private sectors, academia, civil society, and youth was tasked to make recommendations for a development agenda beyond 2015. Their report was released at the end of May in 2013 and titled “A New Global Partnership: Eradicate Poverty and Transform Economies through Sustainable Development.”

The IOM Global Environmental Health and Sustainable Development Innovation Collaborative will cap off its spring 2013 webinar series with presentations highlighting the key points of the report; responses to the panel’s work and identified strengths and gaps; and considerations for the role of environmental health in the development agenda looking forward to 2015 and beyond. The webinar will take place on Thursday, July 25 from 2:30 - 4:00 PM EDT. 

This is the sixth in an ongoing series of webinars to look at the intersection of sustainable development and global environmental health.The goal of these webinars is to discuss opportunities to inform the global community on health information for decision-making and to raise awareness of the health implications of global policies. The webinar series is organized with support from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences and the Pan American Health Organization.
