Welcome to World Information Transfer

World Information Transfer, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-for-profit organization in consultative status with United Nations/ECOSOC promoting health and environmental literacy. In 1987, inspired by the Chornobyl 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.

WIT held Conferences at the UN Headquarters from 1992 to 2019 on the topic of: HEALTH AND ENVIRONMENT: GLOBAL PARTNERS FOR GLOBAL SOLUTIONS
