CHEMICALS HEALTH MONITOR (CMH)
Launched by the Health and Environment Alliance (HEAL) in 2007, the Chemicals Health Monitor (CHM) aims to improve public health by encouraging more protective regulations of hazardous chemicals in Europe and beyond. This is done through the mobilisation of various constituencies and deploying key environmental health science at critical points of public discourse and policy discussions.
This Health and Environment Alliance (HEAL) project is supported from the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB), the German Umweltbundesamt (UBA) and the European Union (EU).
