5TH NATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ENVIRONMENT AND HEALTH POSTPONED TILL FURTHER NOTICE

In cooperation with the ongoing efforts by the Federal and various State governments to contain and curtail the transmission of COVID-19 in Nigeria, it has become necessary that the 5th National Conference on Environment and Health be postponed from the erstwhile scheduled date of April 14-15 2020 TILL FURTHER NOTICE.

 We are trusting the almighty God that this postponement will result in a better, bigger, and more impactful environment-health conference and a more effective campaign against Cancers in Nigeria.

 Meanwhile, Registration and Submission of Abstracts continue on the Conference portals at http://conferences.lsfnigeria.org

Apart from general notices, personal notification of the new date for the conference will be sent directly to all those who pre-register on the portals.

 We look forward to seeing you safe and sound at the 5th National Conference on Environment and Health in the post-COVID -19 season, hopefully a few weeks away from the original date.

COMBATTING ENVIRONMENTAL AND OCCUPATIONAL CANCERS IN NIGERIA

“The majority of all cancers occurs in low- and middle-income countries, and this proportion is increasing…. A substantial percentage of all cancers is caused by environmental and occupational exposures. Many cancers caused by environmental and occupational exposures can be prevented. Primary prevention – prevention of the exposures that cause cancer – is the single most effective means of prevention. Primary prevention keeps cancer from ever occurring. Primary prevention saves lives and saves billions of dollars.” – from the Asturias Declaration, WHO, 2011
