One of the core objectives of the Program on Reproductive Health and the Environment (PRHE) is to sustain and expand a collaborative network of partners that has the capacity to influence clinical practice. Formed in 2008, FASTEP was created to fulfill this objective and is now an alliance of 22 leaders in the reproductive and environmental health fields that all share a commitment to the primary prevention of exposure to environmental contaminants. Using a highly collaborative model, FASTEP’s mission is to secure each and everyone’s right to optimal reproductive health by fostering environments that prevent exposure to potential reproductive toxicants and provide the nutritive and social sustenance necessary for healthy pregnancies, children, adults and future generations.
