Official website of New Hampshire Environmental Public Health Tracking Program

How clean is New Hampshire’s air? What health problems could be linked to the water we drink? What relationships may exist between environmental exposures and cancer?

New Hampshire’s Environmental Public Health Tracking Program will help policymakers, health professionals, scientists, researchers and others to:

  • Advance research on possible linkages between environmental hazards and disease;
  • Monitor information about environmental hazards and disease trends;
  • Track advances in health status and environmental improvements; and
  • Use data to develop, implement, and evaluate regulatory and public health actions to prevent or control environment-related diseases.

Funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as part of the National Environmental Public Health Tracking Program, New Hampshire’s Tracking program also links you to comparable information from other states and to national data.
