At the Fourth Ministerial Conference on Environment and Health in Budapest, Hungary, ministers of health and environment recognized that the existing housing stock, the lifestyles of our people, the immediate environment of dwellings and the social conditions of the inhabitants should all be considered when developing healthy and sustainable housing policies.

Following on from the Conference the CIEH, in collaboration with WHO European Centre for Environment and Health, produced a book on the Public health significance of urban pests.

The main purpose of this document is to identify some of the approaches to urban pest control that beneficially reduce the impact of pests on public health, particularly with regard to children.
