INCHES: Peter van den Hazel book on children’s health
President of the International Network on Children’s Health, Environment and Safety (INCHES) and President of HEAL Dr. Peter van den Hazel recently published his thesis on children’s health and the environment in the form of a book.
Peter will defend his thesis in public this November, which focuses on knowledge about children’s environmental health and analyses the role that knowledge plays in policy development. Various aspects are considered including:
- The rise of the children’s environmental health domain during the last two decades in Europe;
- A validation of the knowledge in this field;
- An assessment of its relevance to policy making by providing recommendations on its use by policy makers and;
- An analysis of how this knowledge is used through networking between scientists, policy makers and other stakeholders.
Later in the month from 20 – 22 November the 7th International Conference on Children´s Health and the Environment will take place in Jerusalem, Israel. The conference will focus on promoting and achieving a healthier world for our children. For more information and to register click here
