If not properly managed, the use of such pesticides may lead to resistance development, adverse effects on human health and the environment, accumulation of obsolete stocks, among others.

We facilitated several regional workshops organised by WHO with the aim to strengthen public pesticide management. Furthermore, technical support was provided to the Ministries of Health in various countries to conduct national situation analyses and develop action plans for strengthening public health pesticide management.

Most of this work was conducted under the project Reducing health risks through sound management of pesticides, executed by the WHO Pesticide Evaluation Scheme (WHOPES).
