The third Interministerial Conference on Health and Environment in Africa (IMCHE3) was held in Libreville, Gabon from 6th – 9th November, 2018, drawing hundreds of delegates within health and environment sectors from across the continent.
Jointly organised by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) hosted by the Government of Gabon, the conference aimed at drawing attention and addressing the important link between the environment and health.
It also marked a decade since the historic Libreville Declaration on Health and the Environment in which African Nations committed to tackling 11 priority areas for addressing Africa’s top health and environment challenges. This joint action has improved the lives of millions of Africans, but still much more needs to be done to catalyse action and reach the sustainable development goals.
At this year’s conference, African ministers of health and environment agreed on a 10-year strategic plan to increase investment and accelerate joint health and environment priorities.
