President's Message

Greetings from the President of the South African Institute of Environmental Health.  It gives me great pleasure, esteemed colleagues, to welcome all of you to our website.

We have gone to great lengths to improve our website and make it more relevant. I must congratulate the team that made this possible, as I realize that a lot of hard work was undertaken to ensure that the website meets the expectations of our visitors to this site.  There has been a renaissance in Environmental Health both in South Africa and internationally, which is based on new evidence of the inextricable link between people and the environment. Therefore colleagues, it becomes critical to ensure that we, Environmental Health Practitioners are well equipped and able to meet these new challenges facing our noble profession.
