The quality of the environment is invariably linked to the health and wellbeing of society. This is because there are a number of environmental factors, such as air quality, water quality, chemical and waste management practices that have a bearing on human health.

ERA, together with Superintendence for Public Health, the Environmental Health Directorate and the Ministry for the Environment, Climate Change and Planning is working on a National Portfolio of Actions on Environment and Health pursuant to the obligations of the Declaration of the Sixth Ministerial Conference on Environment and Health (the Ostrava Declaration). This Action Plan will tackle Noise Pollution, Air Pollution, Transport and Urban Areas, Chemicals, Waste, Water, Climate Change and Environmentally sustainable health systems.
