This publication provides an overview of the available evidence of the relationship between the physical environment and children's health. It identifies both research needs and policy priorities to protect children's health from environmental hazards. The report was prepared by the WHO European Centre for Environment and Health, Rome Operational Division, with support from the European Environment Agency. It is based on background papers prepared for the Third Ministerial Conference on Environment and Health, held in London in 1999.
