People living in poverty are the ones that mainly suffers from ill-health caused by environmental hazards. 30% of the burden of diseases in the poorest coun- tries are caused by environmental factors. Diarrhoea is still considered the lead- ing cause of diseases, world-wide. The reasons for environmental dieases are often found in the near home sur- rouding and poor people have less possibilities to protect themselves from bad quality of water, bad sanitation or indoor-air pollution. It is also clear that improved environment health is closly linked to the strategy of poverty alleviation as people living in poverty are the main victims of environmental hazards and when actions for improvements are taken, it has a direct effect on poor peoples health, well-being and living conditions and there- for capacity to support themselves.
