NEHA's Pending International Environmental Health Partner


C. Aiken, Colonel Anthony, Journal of Environmental Health


In early September, Executive Director Nelson Fabian and I had great expectations for our visit to England after receiving a formal invitation from David Purchon, President of the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH) to attend the Congress 2000 meeting in Harrogate, England. As you can imagine, we were excited and enthused to finally meet with our professional counterparts in Europe for discussions on a partnership agreement. NEHA presidents and members have been attending the CIEH congress for several years; however, this was the first year of frank and open discussions regarding partnership.

To set the stage for this meeting in England, Nelson, under the direction of NEHA's board of directors, had several preliminary meetings with his CIEH counterpart, Gary Ince, to establish an agenda for our visit. The agenda was important to ensure that we would focus on key issues for both associations.

Before I discuss partnership issues, however, let me provide a little background on CIEH for NEHA members. CIEH has a long and treasured history in England. Founded in 1883, it was granted a Royal Charter in 1984. CIEH is an independent professional body representing those who work in environmental health and related disciplines. With more than 9,000 members, the organization is a registered charity and a founding member of the International Federation of Environmental Health (IFEH). (NEHA Past President Diane Evans is our official representative to IFEH.) The CIEH corporate headquarters, with more than 120 employees, is located in London, England.

In addition to ensuring the highest standards of professional competence--in the belief that through environmental health action, people's health can be improved--CIEH also aims to influence government policy through lobbying, joint initiatives, and public relations campaigns. In addition, CIEH provides education for environmental health officers and maintains liaisons with colleges and universities for professional training.
