Taking Science to Impact

World NTD Day 2021: Equity


NTDs are a threat to 1.7 billion people globally and are responsible for thousands of preventable deaths each year, perpetuating the cycle of poverty.

With World NTD Day on the horizon, we are proud to have joined the campaign to #EndtheNeglect and #BeatNTDs.

Bevölkerungsumfrage

Im Alltag sind Menschen Chemikalien ausgesetzt, die in Lebensmitteln oder Konsumgütern enthalten sind. Wie und in welchem Umfang solche Substanzen in unseren Körper gelangen, untersucht das Forschungsprogramm Human-Biomonitoring HBM4EU. 30 Länder in Europa nehmen teil. In der Schweiz wird die Studie vom Swiss TPH durchgeführt. Um die Meinung der Bevölkerung für ein sicheres Chemikalien- management in Europa und der Schweiz zu erfahren, führt HBM4EU eine Umfrage durch.
