Tartu Health Care College would be truly honoured to host a 4th IFEH World Acedemic Conference on Environmental Health from 4th to 6th May, 2021. We would like to provide a modern conditions for the conference, interesting and high-level scientific presentations related to relevant environmental health issues and exciting activities in our beautiful nature. The conference will engage academia, researchers, policy makers, practitioners, students and local communities from the 4 regions of the IFEH (Africa, Americas, Asia and Pacific, and European).

Situation in Environmental Health is ever-changing, especially nowadays with many new challenges such as globalization, consumerism, climate and demographic change etc. We face new geographic scale of diseases, obesity in some areas as well as famine in others, we waste water in some countries in times of draught in others. Everyone of us in every corner of the world has different challenges and milestones. Lets put the real environmental health situation on the scale and see how we could overcome these challenges, survive and thrive in these changing times. Lets do it TOGETHER!

Welcoming words from IFEH`President, Prof. Susana Paixão
