REHIS launched an International Essay Competition last week. REHIS, a Founder Member of the International Federation of Environmental Health, celebrated its 135th birthday earlier this year and has marked the occasion by inviting undergraduate and postgraduate students on Environmental Health programmes accredited by member organisations of the Federation to participate in an essay competition. The set essay topic will be: How would you raise the profile of environmental health and make its delivery more relevant to government and policy makers over the next five years? This is a REHIS award and the Institute aims to raise the profile of international environmental health issues, encourage student Environmental Health Professionals to consider Environmental Health in a global perspective, and promote the work of the Federation as the global umbrella organisation for environmental health.
