COST Action CA18218

PFAS Task Force

The Task Force (TF) on PFAS disease burden is an initiative under the European Burden of Disease Network. The TF is a subgroup of WG3 Risk Factors. The TF is welcoming members with an interest in advancing initiatives in estimation of PFAS disease burden and related activities.

Its aims are to:

  • Share experiences and harmonize methodologies in studies of disease burden of PFAS
  • Support each other with calculations, model assumptions, data gaps of national burden studies on PFAS
  • Serve as a platform for technical and scientific discussions on PFAS burden and related topics
  • Discuss and collaborate on concrete research projects on disease burden of PFAS

The TF meets approximately every 6 weeks. Besides a status update on PFAS activities from the participants of the TF, different topics for discussion are selected for each meeting. If possible, external experts are invited for presenting their research within PFAS. We also have the opportunity to arrange ad-hoc meetings and discussions as needed/requested by members of the TF, and to use the burden-eu discussion forum.

You can find the minutes of our meetings, and relevant publications on PFAS exposure and burden, on the Google Drive.

If you are interested in joining, contact Lea Sletting Jakobsen.
