NOAA's Oceans and Human Health Initative

Project Description
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) Oceans and Human Health Initiative (OHHI) is taking a new look at how the health of our oceans, coasts and Great Lakes impacts our own health and well-being, in the context of existing knowledge of how our activities affect the health of aquatic environments. The goal of the OHHI is to understand and predict how the condition of these waters positively or negatively affect human health. In turn, the OHHI will provide tools, technologies and environmental information to resource and public health managers and the public to maximize health benefits and reduce or eliminate health risks.
