Global day of action on POPs in Russia.
The Chapaevsk Medical Association conducted POPs awareness-raising activities for city teachers and students. Schoolchildren were informed on POPs-related situations in Chapaevsk at lessons of geography and ecology for senior pupils and lessons of natural history for younger schoolchildren. Students and school pupils completed 176 questionnaires on matters of the city environment and healthy lifestyles. The first information newsletter, "We Can Protect Our Health," was designed as a newspaper insert and published (5,100 copies). The newsletter contained contact phone numbers to receive readers' feedback.
