Swiss Health study – pilot phase started

Switzerland is launching the “Swiss Health study – pilot phase” to assess the feasibility of a nationwide human biomonitoring (HBM) project, intended to give an overview of the health status, chemical exposure and nutritional status of the general population in Switzerland. After a delay due to COVID-19, recruitment of participants has started.

You can volunteer to join the study under this link.

Dr. Natalie von Götz from the FOPH will refer to this study in a talk at the SCAHT/UFT symposium "Bridging the gap - regulation & research in pesticide human health effects" on 23 September 2020.
