Collaborative research

Promotion of collaborative research in children’s environmental health among scientists in developing and developed countries is critical to addressing health problems in their national and global contexts.

These collaborative activities also result in technology transfer and capacity building, and in the build up of a network of trained scientific collaborators throughout the developing world. WHO has initiated pilot collaborations in children's environmental health in the following areas:
