The objectives of this activity are:
* To enhance regional knowledge management and technical support for emerging and re-emerging
infectious diseases associated with climate change, ozone depletion and eco-system change through
information sharing and regional cooperation
* To promote research and development in understanding the complex inter-relationship between climate
change, ozone depletion, ecosystem change and human health particularly infectious diseases
* To promote effective management of the environment for the benefit of human health at the region
* To establish a regional information centre from which the member countries may access available
sources of data related to human health effects of the climate change, ozone depletion and
