World Environmental Health Day
World Environmental Health Day is observed on September 26. The theme for this year is ‘Prioritising Environmental Health for healthier communities in the global recovery.’ The day is important in the current situation as most parts of the world continue to recover from the ongoing coronavirus pandemic situation. In such times, the importance of the Environmental Health workforce has been highlighted more than ever before. The day was started by the International Federation of Environmental Health council during a meeting in Indonesia on this day in 2011.
