NCEH Kids' Page: Global Health

Doctor examining the globe

Did you know that NCEH worked with 82 different countries last year?

The environment belongs to everyone, and environmental problems can affect the health of every country. NCEH's scientists can learn from and teach scientists around the world about health problems that come from the environment. Some of our projects help children in many different countries, such as making sure they get enough vitamins to grow up healthy. We can also help other countries figure out what's making people sick. For example, Egypt asked for NCEH's help, and we discovered that people in one area were getting lead poisoning by eating grain that had lead in it. We want to work together to help people be healthier worldwide.
