Overview

For nearly 30 years, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) have worked together under the auspices of a cooperative agreement to enhance global environmental health through research, training, capacity-building, and information-sharing activities.

This report does not represent an exhaustive record of all activities covered in the lengthy span of the WHO-NIEHS Cooperative Agreement. Rather, it aims to present in broad terms the rationale for creating the Cooperative Agreement, the approach taken to the work it supported, and how its key activities and outputs adapted to reflect major events and changes in the international policy environment throughout this period.
