EHA : Yearkbook 2009
EHA YEARBOOK 2009 19 IFEH Asia and Pacific Regional Group Corporate Reports As Asia and Pacific Regional Group Chair of the International Federation of Environmental Health (IFEH) and as a Board Member of IFEH, key activities undertaken this year have been: I attended the IFEH Council Meeting hosted by the Singapore Society of Environmental Health on 18 and 19 July 2009; am engaged with the Council and IFEH Board of Directors (BOD) on a Climate Change and Health policy; assisting with the Sustainable Indicator Project; promoting environmental Health in the Asia Pacific Region and I presented a paper at the Centre for Livable Cities in the Ministry of Environment, Singapore, to promote IFEH. I will hopefully attend the next IFEH BOD meeting in November 2009. As Chair of the Asia and Pacific Regional Group, I have proposed to IFEH Council that I investigate hosting the IFEH World Congress in Hong Kong in 2 014 . EHA and other partners will benefit financially from this approach and there was considerable support for Hong Kong as a venue from IFEH Council members. I will be meeting with the Hong Kong group to discuss this proposal further. We have had good progress in Indonesia when myself and John Gerizim (Asia and Pacific Secretary) from the Singapore Society of Environmental Health (SSEH) were invited as keynote speakers in a Workshop in Jakarta in November 2008 and to the inaugural International Environmental Health Seminar hosted by the n ewly formed Indonesian Environmental Health Specialists Association (IEHSA) in Surabaya in March 2009. IEHSA have now joined the IFEH as a full country member and the University of Indonesia is now an associate academic member. There are 15 other Universities teaching Environmental Health across Indonesia that may join, with Airlangga University from Surabaya also joining as a member recently. I met with Malaysian environmental health members in July and March this year in Kuala Lumpur, while on other University business to Malaysia. Based on the increased activities in Indonesia, the Asia and Pacific Regional Group/IFEH Council has donated AUD $1200 to subsidise IEHSA and SCEH to cover their promotional costs to date. Future activities include the IEHSA hosting its third International meeting in Bogor, Jakarta 9, 10 and 11 October 2009, which we are also attending as keynote speakers. John Gerizim and I are planning to travel to India, Sri Lanka and Hong Kong in November this year to promote our Asia and Pacific Regional Group and IFEH Activities. Both Sri Lanka and Hong Kong are members while India is not. I've also made contact with EHOs in Thailand, Vietnam and Manilla, with this work being continued by John Gerizim, of SSEH. Environmental Health is quite strong across the Region particularly due to intense interest in Climate Change issues, so now is the best time to promote our profession and support local EHOs. We are encouraging as many members as possible, especially from developing countries, to attend the IFEH 11th World Congress 2010 in Canada.
