ASBESTOS. Not here. Not anywhere.SIGN OPEN LETTER TO GOVERNMENTS IN ASIA (read more)
We know asbestos kills. In some countries, asbestos is still mined, manufactured and used. Every day thousands of people are still exposed to deadly asbestos.
While some people profit, other people die. The World Health Organisation says the most efficient way to eliminate asbestos-related diseases is to stop the use of all types of asbestos.
As long as Asbestos is being used anywhere, it remains a risk, everywhere.
Union Aid Abroad-APHEDA is building a movement of people in Australia to join with movements of people in countries in South East Asia in their efforts to see asbestos banned and eradicated.
