This April marks the celebration of two significant global events relevant to the mission of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS)... The NIEHS, with a public health mandate, a strong history of global cooperation on environmental health problems, and a research vision aimed at solving the puzzles of environmental disease, is uniquely poised at the front lines of global environmental health... However, the NIEHS investment in global environmental health goes well beyond shared expertise... Over the years the institute has funded and collaborated in wide-ranging scientific endeavors in partnership with scientists and scientific organizations in other countries, and continues to invest significant resources in such projects... The NIEHS also supports a number of other activities that either directly or indirectly build environmental health science capacity in other countries such as scientific conferences and meetings, including two in 2006 specifically targeted at identifying global environmental health issues and exploring research partnerships... Perhaps the most visible aspect of this capacity building is the NIEHS’s publication of Environmental Health Perspectives, which through its policy of Open Access and commitment to dissemination of research and information to the developing world, provides a global foundation of knowledge on environmental health science... The NIEHS is strongly committed to continuing its tradition of active engagement and leadership in global environmental health... In fact, the NIEHS 2006–2011 Strategic Plan specifically identifies global environmental health research, capacity building, training, and partnerships as a priority for our institute... As the celebrations of World Health Day and Earth Day this month bring into sharp relief, there has never been a greater need or a better time for the NIEHS to reaffirm our efforts toward these goals.
