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.

Environmental Health Task Force Fosters Collaboration
December 5, 2017

Last month, leaders from the Department of Environment Services (DES) and the Division of Public Health Services (DPHS) launched a new Environmental Health Task Force that will foster collaboration across the two agencies. Participants gathered to discuss existing synergies and current gaps related to Environmental Health capacity. Attendees reviewed results from an Environmental Health System Assessment Survey and brainstormed potential projects to build on strengths and improve areas of weaknesses. The long-term goal is for the Environmental Health Task Force to provide guidance and coordinate resources on select projects that advance the collective work of the environmental health system. Suggested areas for collaboration included Safe Water, Clean Air, Healthy Communities, and Emergency Preparedness.
