Welcome to the Division of Environmental Health

Environmental health is the study of how environmental factors can harm and impact on human health, as well as how to identify, prevent and manage such effects. The Division of Environmental Health (DEH) offers a selection of activities to facilitate addressing environmental health, particularly in Low and Middle Income Countries, from teaching, research to community and government engagement.  The DEH offers students and professionals post graduate and capacity building training and skills development for application to diverse environments.  Our primary research informs and contributes to our active involvement with national and international policies.
