Environment and Health Fund: Supporting Human Biomonitoring in Israel

Ruth Ostrin, Environment and Health Fund, Jerusalem, Israel (reutl@bioforum.co.il)


Reducing exposure to environmental contaminants is important both for improving public health and for promoting better environmental policies.  Human biomonitoring (HBM) allows the assessment of levels of pollution in people, rather than pollution in environmental media. HBM entails the analysis of low doses of environmental contaminants found in human biological samples such as urine, blood, breast milk, amniotic fluid, and the like.  This brief presentation will provide an overview of the work of the Environment and Health Fund in Israel over the past decade designed to ensure the development of local HBM capacities and capabilities, presenting several examples of the use of HBM to improve and/or to test the effectiveness of regulation in Israel
