The informal Emergency Interagency WASH Group (ACF, Care, ICRC, IFRC, IRC, Oxfam, MSF, UNHCR, and UNICEF) is delighted to invite you to attend and submit research and learning abstracts for the 8th Emergency Environmental Health Forum (EEHF).

The event will be hosted by the German WASH Network in close collaboration with the Secretariat of the Sustainable Sanitation Alliance (SuSanA) at GIZ. The scientific review process and agenda will be supported by the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine. The aim of the 2018 EEHF is:
- To share new research and learning
- To discuss new approaches and innovation in the sector
- To bridge silos between WASH and other humanitarian sectors
- To identify research gaps in the emergency environmental health sector


“Sanitation - a Forgotten Foundation of Health” is the theme of this year’s EEHF. We welcome submissions on related topics for emergency WASH, including but not limited to: Excreta Disposal and Management, Outbreak Control, Wastewater and Waste Management and last but certainly not least Vector Control.

Although sanitation is a priority under this year’s agenda, we also welcome operational research submissions concerning Drinking Water, Hygiene, Air Pollution and Quality, Tackling Undernutrition and Disease Transmission Dynamics.

Call for abstracts was closed in January 2018.

Registration: Registration is now closed for the 8th EEHF.
