Another registered partnership, the Healthy Environments for Children initiative, introduced by World Health Organization director-general Gro Harlem Brundtland, seeks to improve children's health on several fronts: increased access to fresh water, better hygiene, improved sanitation, and reduced exposure to air pollution and disease vectors such as malaria-transmitting mosquitoes.
