15th World Congress On Environmental Health 2018

15th World Congress On Environmental Health 2018

New Zealand is an ethnically diverse Pacific country, but with its legal system and Environmental Health firmly rooted in the British model.

Having a population of 4.6 million spread across a country the size of Great Britain makes for some interesting administrative challenges, and politically, the population size also allows for quite rapid societal change.

From its colonial roots, New Zealand has become an extremely varied and entrepreneurial society. The Environmental Health professional has had to adapt to working in this culturally diverse, dynamic and challenging environment. This conference is an opportunity to explore the impact of change in the South Pacific and learn from each other.
