About the Course
Environmental factors are behind 26 percent of mortality in children below five years and 23 percent worldwide. Though diverse and widespread, the factors are preventable. Climatic upheavals, hazardous substances in earth elements – soil, water, air – as well as the built environment can all be addressed to decrease exposure and the likelihood for disease. An education in environmental health is thus an important resource in building a greater capacity for measuring and responding to environmental hazards. Equip yourself with this qualification to help maintain a healthy environment and increase human life quality and span.
