Environment and Health constitute an indispensable matrix affecting human health. The new scenario evolving in our environment is highly dreadful as more and more different kinds of illnesses, both communicable and non-communicable, are surfacing the world over with a blitzkrieg pace. The current legislation and policy plays a key role in the environmental quality and validation, which transmit a large number of deadly and/or debilitating diseases at global level. These infirmities of environment and legislations not only affect the health of the people, they also stunt their intelligentsia and sap off their socio-economic conditions. Understanding of relations of environment, health and policy is an instrumental to alleviate health risks suffering due to polluted environmental segments.
The International Conference on “Environment, Health, and Policy Nexus” will hopefully provide a unique opportunity to bring all the possible knowledge on such a vital subject converge at one platform for extensive deliberation and solution-finding exercise.
With kind regards and looking forward to having your active participation in the international conference. We remain,
