Our environment impacts our health.
We teach individuals and communities how to reduce their risk of illness and injury that arise from elements of the environment that surrounds us - this includes the food we eat, the water we drink and the air we breathe. WHEN uses the influence and knowledge of women to become champions for change. WHEN is a trusted source of credible tools and information for women on today’s relevant and emerging environmental health topics.
Since 1994, WHEN has been educating the general public, media and policy makers that environmental health is a key determinant of public health, and has promoted public action for the prevention of environmental health harms.
We want to see an end to toxic exposure-related diseases, but we cannot make these changes alone. Find out how you can get involved.
Thank you to all our supporters!
Our 2016-17 season of WTF evenings of networking, learning and action on our health and the environment were a great success. Learn more
