Experts from around the world will meet in Yerevan, on April 22-23, for a two-day scientific symposium at the American University of Armenia (AUA) on the impact of mining and construction on health in Armenia and other transitional economies.

This symposium is organized by the AUA School of Public Health and the AUA Acopian Center for the Environment in cooperation with the Collegium Ramazzini, an independent, international academy advancing the study and practice of occupational and environmental health and safety.

The conference takes place against the backdrop of new challenges facing many of the transitional economies of the former Soviet Union. Armenia, along with other members of the former communist block, has been unable to develop adequate responses to the socio-economic, environmental, and public health concerns rising from unregulated market growth in mineral extraction and construction.

The symposium seeks to help craft public policy that can address these issues, protect workers and ensure Armenia properly develops these economic industries.
