Southern African call to cut health risks from agchems

Southern African pesticide authorities and workers have been urged to adopt measures to cut the risks to human health and the environment from pesticide use. The academic network, Work and Health in Southern Africa (WAHSA), has called for: an increased laboratory capacity to analyse pesticides and pesticide residues; the setting up of surveillance systems to monitor pesticide poisoning, inform prevention and control programmes and engage stakeholders in policymaking action; and improvements to regulators’ capacity to control the use of and exposure to pesticides and enforce legislation, such as on the registration of the “most hazardous products”.
