Korean Society of Environmental Health

Welcome to Korean Society of Environmental Health.

Founded in May 1971 as Korean Society of Environmental Hygiene, Korean Society of Environmental Health(KSEH) changed to its current name in September 2004. Since its foundation more than 50 years ago, KSEH has been the beginning and center of environmental health in Korea.

KSEH was first to introduce the concepts of environmental pollution and health effects in Korea when little attention was given to the field of environmental health. Now, it plays a vital role as an global platform where environmental health experts can academically exchange and acquire up-to-date environmental health information. With the emphasis on environmental policies focused on the receptor (human, environmental, and ecological) since 2000, KSEH has been playing various roles at the center of environmental health in Korea.

The 26th President of Korean Environmental Health Society

Wonho Yang, Daegu Catholic University

In a highly industrialized society, environmental (health) issues are among society’s most pressing concerns as serous new environmental health problems continue to emerge. As a leading academic society in the field of environmental health, KSEH’s role is called for by companies, research institutes, governments, and universities. Our role will become even more important in overcoming COVID-19 and in paving the way forward in the new normal. To this end, KSEH aims to play the following roles:

First, providing various beneficial environmental health information,

Second, publishing excellent journals with high academic value,

Third, contributing to efforts to tackle environmental health issues in our society,

Fourth, creating the era of environmental health certification (Engineer Environmental Risk Managing),

Fifth, leading the international environmental health through our international environmental health network.

We have recently built an academic hall to facilitate academic activities among members and to contribute to the society. In addition, KSEH has been collaborating with government in developing the Second Comprehensive Environmental Health Plan, and also, by providing industries with information and environmental health technologies, maintains a close relationship with the public and our members.

For the past 50 years, KSEH has operated in the spirit of Sangbu-Sangjo, and has led to the solution of environmental health problems in Korea through the blood, sweat, and tears of many scholars. I hope you will also be part of our constant thinking, research, and communication in an effort to solve environmental health problems at home and abroad.


The Korean Society of Environmental Health(KSEH) was founded in May 1971 with the purpose of improving human welfare through environmental health, and more than 1,000 professional members(universities, research institutes, industries, etc.) are playing a pivotal role in the respective area. KSEH has also been very active in research, bimonthly publishing its official journal, ‘Journal of Environmental Health Sciences’ that has been listed in KCI since 2003. In addition to domestic conferences, KSEH has been organizing international conferences and visiting conferences since 2002, as an initiative to call for an international joint effort in protecting global environment and preserving ecosystem, and has made profound achievement in developing research network and promoting collaboration over the years.
