Protecting workers health in a climate of change - from policy to action

The Eighth Meeting of the Global Network of WHO Collaborating Centres for Occupational Health was held in Geneva from 19-23 October 2009. The PAHO Workers' Health program from the Sustainable Development and Environmental Health Area, and several collaborating centers from the region of the Americas participated at this event. The meeting agreed on a package of priority initiatives, projects and deliverables to advance the implementation of the WHO Global Plan of Action on Workers' Health in the period 2009-2012. As part of the program, a high-level round table addressed opportunities for protecting and promoting the health of workers arising from the United Nations Joint Crisis Initiatives, such as development of green economy and a basic social protection floor.
