General Public Information

The objective of the IAEA programme in Human Health is to enhance the capabilities in Member States to address needs related to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of health problems through the application of nuclear techniques. The mandate arises from Article II of the IAEA's Statute: the Agency shall accelerate and enlarge the contribution of atomic energy to health.

The IAEA's programme in Human Health, (NAHU) currently maintains two separate web sites:

  • www-naweb.iaea.org/nahu: The organizational home page, part of the IAEA website. This site describes in detail the range of NAHU's efforts and activities.
  • humanhealth.iaea.org (where you are presently): This site is also organized by NAHU, and has been created as a resource for health professionals to find organized and dependable professional materials.
