Short description: This link gives outline information on the EU Environment and Health Action Plan for the period 2004-2010. 
Long description: The action plan aims to provide the European Union with the scientifically grounded information needed to help Member States reduce the adverse health impacts of certain environmental factors and to endorse better cooperation between stakeholders in the environment, health and research fields, whether these are public authorities in Member States, institutions, European bodies or civil society. The action plan is based on three main themes, each one covering a certain number of actions: Improving the information chain to understand the links between sources of pollution and health effects: Filling the knowledge gap by strengthening research on environment and health and identifying emerging issues: Reviewing policies and improving communication by developing the awareness-raising process, risk communication, training and education to give citizens the information they need to make better health choices, and to make sure that professionals in each field are alert to environment and health interactions:
