Abstract: The Third Ministerial Conference on Environment and Health will be held in London on 16-18 June 1999. It will focus on approaches and activities that will tangibly improve the environment and health of future generations. The economic dimension of environment and health will be on the Conference agenda; the economy will be dealt with both as a target and as a means for achieving the environmental health policy. The Task Force on Perspectives in Environment and Health was established in order to prepare the initiative to be taken by the Member States of the WHO European Region and international organizations and institutions. The Conference document on economic perspectives in environment and health is intended to be the common product of the key international institutions involved in questions combining economic and environment and health dimensions, such as the EU, OECD, UN/ECE, UNEP, World Bank and WHO, as well as input from some experts from Member States. The advice of the ministers participating in the Task Force is needed in order to reflect the opinion of those Member States, as well as to assist in formulating the long-term direction of action to be taken. In order to mobilize available resources and knowledge, the Conference is expected to endorse the establishment of a long-term collaborative programme between relevant international organizations and institutions. The meeting specified the scope of the programme of collaboration and the added value of its activities, sketched the organizational and managerial aspects of the programme, prepared a draft ministerial resolution for the Conference and discussed the plan of work until the pre-Conference meeing in Bled, Slovenia on 14-16 February 1999
