It summarizes key messages for action on different environmental health issues, including global environmental change; water pollution; sanitation and hygiene; nutrition, growth and development; vectors of disease; air pollution; chemicals; injuries; environmental emergencies, noise and healthy housing. It also includes the 2009 Busan Pledge for Action on Children's Health and the Environment, drafted by participants at the 3rd WHO International Conference on Children's Health and the Environment.
