About the Conference

The Environment – A Platform for Health

Good health is a desirable status for everyone, but it’s also a factor of prosperity and economic growth for the society. The research of the last decades proved that many diseases are related to the poor quality of the environment. The Central and Eastern Europe Conference on Health and the Environment (CEECHE) is a joint approach initiated and supported by European and US institutions, aimed to analyze and better define the complex links between health and environment. Beside topics addressing the specific problems met in Central and Eastern Europe, the Conference accommodates issues related to any part of the world, according to the proposed main themes. The third edition of CEECHE, to be held on October 19 – 22, 2008, in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, is a follow of the successful Conferences in Prague 2004, and Bratislava 2006. It is hoped that the 2008 Conference will encourage collaboration among scientists from various fields, in order to increase the interdisciplinarity and multinational participation, and to promote the integrative research. The participants will find a new opportunity to share concepts and ideas, and to start cooperative projects in the field of Health and Environment.
