Title: Education in Chemistry
and Human Health
Remarks: Interaction with the Chemistry
and Human Health Division, pharmaceutical industry associations,
NIH, and other health and environment agencies.
Completion Date: 2001 - project
The creation in 1996 of the new IUPAC Division of Chemistry and
Human Health indicates the international significance of this field.
The topic of human health is notoriously subject to prejudice and
ignorance. The media have proven unreliable allies in the campaign
to dispel ignorance and the dissemination of correct knowledge through
the formal education system at all levels is therefore urgent. The
priorities and appropriate approaches vary from region to region.
CTC members from the different regions will therefore play an important
role in shaping CTC initiatives in their region.
A cooperation with Commission VII.C.2 has led to the project of
compiling an abbreviated version of the already published textbook
entitled "Toxicology for Chemists' > see
