Global Environmental & Occupational Health

The Center for Global Environmental and Occupational Health is a NIH Fogarty Centre for "International Research and Training in Environmental and Occupational Health." The Centre engages in training, research, consultation, and capacity-building activities with partner institutes around the world.

As a WHO/PAHO Collaborating Centre in Occupational and Environmental Health, we work to help realize the WHO Declaration of Occupational Health for All and the PAHO Regional Plan for Worker's Health. Our terms of reference with WHO and PAHO include work in the Americas and in eastern Europe. The Center maintains a regional office in Kyiv, Ukraine in addition to our primary location in Chicago. The Center hosts Visiting Scientists from our partner institutes for training in the United States and supports collaborative conferences, symposia, and workshops on occupational and environmental health throughout the world. In addition to occupational health, the environmental health of children is a major focus area for our Center. We also work with key stakeholders to promote environmental and occupational health policies that protect the health of workers, children, and communities locally and globally.
