Flags of U.S and MexicoProtection of public health is a key element of the Border 2012 program and it is an integral part of all program activities. The Environmental Health Work Group (EHWG) serves as the main conduit for addressing bi-national environmental health concerns, such as increases in disease rates along the US-Mexico border. We are committed to increasing collaboration between environmental and public health entities to identify and improve community health issues.

In the past several years, we have conducted a number of projects in the border region related to surveillance, research, training/education and communication. More recently, the workgroup focus has shifted to also look at the development and application of indicators to assess changes in specific human exposure and health conditions. For a list of ongoing projects regarding border environmental health, visit our projects and publications page.
