We are familiar with the phrase, “Environmental health is extremely local.” While environmental health affects most of us on the local level, we also understand that environmental health is universal and does not know borders. The location, geography, people, and conditions can differ but the science and principles of environmental health do not. In this new column, the National Environmental Health Association (NEHA) will present environmental health issues and topics from a global perspective. Understanding environmental health on a global scale can help us recognize how that influences our local spheres and provides learning opportunities to broaden our perspectives. The conclusions of this column are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily represent the views or official position of NEHA. The Environmental Health Community of Practice is a group of professionals from around the world with expertise in the teaching and practice of environmental health. The community was established in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic and its goal was to share ideas to respond to the challenges posed by the pandemic and to offer each other support. The community continues to meet and focuses on writing manuscripts for publication and sharing teaching ideas and practice insights.
