Participation in the Argentina National Implementation Plan (NIP) of the Stockholm Convention focusing on children's chemical safety.
This project activity supported AAMMA's participation in the NIP and dissemination of activities in NIP preparation to other NGOs. AAMMA provided a public interest and physician perspective in NIP participation and promoted a policy that included indicators of children's chemical safety; sharing information; and developing options for taking effective precautionary actions from established chemical threats and from chemical risks. The activity achieved its goal, which was to assure a fair balance between the entire NIPs' representatives and reflect the capacity, needs and wishes of the national stakeholders, assuring not only a space of participation, but also the access to information, training and awareness opportunities. Information was posted on the AAMMA website at www.aamma.org.
