Since l992, WIT has convened what we believe to be one of the world’s premier forums for the presentation of scientific papers by international experts on the growing clinical evidence supporting the link between degrading environments and diminished human health.
WIT is an international, not-for-profit, non-governmental organization in General Consultative Status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) promoting environmental health and literacy. In 1987, inspired by the Chrnobyl nuclear tragedy, WIT was formed in recognition of the pressing need to provide accurate actionable information about our deteriorating global environment and its effect on human health.
