HBM4EU partners in Israel

HBM4EU linked third parties in Israel

The Israeli Ministry of Health collects biological samples for HBM as part of its National Health and Nutrition Survey. Activities within HBM4EU include:

  • Input of Israel HBM data for data sharing and harmonization
  • Evaluating experiences on using Health and Nutrition surveys as a platform for HBM
  • Sharing data and expertise on evaluating exposure to pesticide mixtures

The HBM4EU project was launched in 2016 with the aim of improving the collective understanding of human exposure to hazardous chemicals and developing HBM as an exposure assessment method. The project had €74m in funding and jointly implemented by 120 partners from 28 participating countries – 24 EU member states plus Norway, Switzerland, Iceland and Israel and the European Environment Agency. One of its aims was to ensure the sustainability of HBM in the EU beyond 2021. The project ended in June 2022. The website will not be updated any longer, except the page on peer reviewed publications, but will be online until 2032.
