The main goal of the Environmental Health program is to protect the population from environmental health risks. These programs are primarily based on health protection legislation intended to reduce environmental health risks including potential disease from contaminated food or water and health effects from poor indoor and outdoor air quality.
In addition to regulatory approaches, the programs rely on health promotion and education, advocacy and partnerships, with both government and non-government organizations as well as community groups.
