According to WHO estimates, 12.6 million people died as a result of living or working in an unhealthy environment. The deaths of 1.7 million children under 5 and 4.9 million adults aged 50 to 75 could be prevented through better environmental management ( Rapidly developing countries, including India bear a large proportion of this burden, but yet lack capacities to recognize, assess and manage environmental hazards. Skilled human resources are scarce in the area of environmental health. This program lays a strong foundation to the students for preparing themselves as future leaders in environmental health sciences.
