||Environmental Health Project is a United
States Agency for International Development centrally funded project that helps missions
and bureaus and other development organizations to address both pre- and post-industrial
transition environment-related health problems. To achieve the most significant health
impact, EHP concentrates on interventions that address three major causes of infant and
child illness and death in USAID-assisted developing countries: diarrhea, acute
respiratory diseases, and malaria. These reports decribe issues and activities
being addressed by EHP including specific health and environment problems with
recommendations of policies and actions
