Public and Environmental Health History –an online platform

During the 15th World Congress on Environmental Health on 20–23 March 2018 in Auckland, New Zealand, the ongoing project called ‘Historia Sanitaria’ was presented by Institute of Public and Environmental Health, Slovenia. The presentation is available on IFEH website.

“Historia Sanitaria’, a complete guide through sanitary history, is an online platform chronologically recording the landmark events and historical achievements of the profession of public and environmental health. It is an online magazine covering different periods of history as well as recent developments. Historia Sanitaria substantively and chronologically covers the activities in Slovenia, its immediate neighbour countries and throughout the world, particularly in the United States and Great Britain.

The journal's website can be accessed here.There you can also find a special category organised for International Federation of Environmental Health history review.
