Upcoming Meetings & Events

Health issues are among those to be discussed at the Commission on the Status of Women 43rd Session in New York, March 1999.

A crucial meeting on health issues will also be the Third European Ministerial Conference on Environment and Health, in June 1999 in London, UK - a WHO conference with delegates from all member states of the WHO's European Region. UNED-UK's Environment and Health Programme is organising the parallel event, the "Healthy Planet Forum".

The next major meeting is the 5 Year Review of the UN Conference on Population and Development, taking place as a UN General Assembly Special Session in June - in short: ICPD+5.
