Environment and Health—Bridging South, North, East and West

EHP is pleased to present the abstracts from the 2013 conference Environment and Health—Bridging South, North, East and West, held 19–23 August 2013 in Basel, Switzerland, and hosted by the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute. The conference was a joint meeting of the International Society for Environmental Epidemiology (ISEE), the International Society of Exposure Science (ISES), and the International Society of Indoor Air Quality and Climate (ISIAQ). More than 1,700 participants from all continents and over 70 countries attended.

Read how the organizers reduced the environmental footprint of the conference in “The Vision of a Green(er) Scientific Conference,” an editorial in the August 2013 issue of EHP by Nino Künzli and Martin Röösli, conference chairs, and Martina S. Ragettli, chair of the local organizing committee “green club.” For more information on the conference, be sure to check out the press release and photos from the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute.
