Health sector adopts global chemicals management resolution

The World Health Assembly – the high level meeting of the World Health Organisation (WHO) – has adopted a resolution on the role of the health sector in the Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management (Saicm) towards the 2020 goal and beyond.

Argentina, Canada, Monaco, Panama, Thailand, the US, Uruguay, and EU member states proposed the resolution. It will see a roadmap prepared over the next year. This will outline key activities where the health sector can contribute towards:

>> achieving the 2020 goal of minimising the negative impacts of chemicals on human health and the environment; and
>> the relevant targets of the 2030 agenda for sustainable development.
