Through its International Program EHP seeks to expand the quality of and access to scientific information around the world. We do this by:
- disseminating critical environmental health science information to research scientists, health practitioners, and policy makers;
- initiating and participating in training and guidance programs for scientific journals in developing countries to help them reach their full potential for high-quality scholarly publishing;
- sharing EHP content for translation into other languages; and
- partnering with international scientific journals to bring scientific information to the broadest possible audience.

Today EHP publishes much of the most important information coming out of environmental health research. With our success comes the responsibility to share this critical information with the global community. more . . .
Capacity BuildingCapacity building is any activity that improves an entity's ability to achieve its mission. In the case of scientific journals, capacity building often involves training and mentorship to improve editorial and administrative functions and processes. Such improvements, in turn, enable a journal to better attract and disseminate information that can improve human health by raising awareness of emerging issues as well as by inciting debate and reflection. In the words of the old maxim, capacity building is teaching a man to fish. more . . .

To help EHP fulfill its mission of disseminating scientific information not only to scientists but also to policy makers and an informed lay public, we provide translations of selected EHP content. more . . .
