Children's Health Protection

Outreach and Partnerships


Public involvement is key to protecting human health and the environment. Citizens and communities need to have information and tools that enable them to take steps toward protecting their children from environmental health threats. Organizations, health professionals, industry and government entities at all levels also need information to help them take child-protective actions. Providing basic information is a key focus of the children’s health program at EPA.

The Office of Children’s Health Protection’s efforts to build capacity in children's environmental health protection include:
  1. Providing information and tools to the public;
  2. Supporting community actions;
  3. Strengthening the ability of health professionals to address children’s environmental health;
  4. Engaging youth; and
  5. Working with states to protect children.
