    Abstract

    The multidisciplinary nature of environmental health practitioners (EHP) allows them to understand where different sectors can intersect to maximise severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2)-related interventions. EHPs have the necessary skills to support the transdisciplinary approach required to halt the further spread of SARS-CoV-2. Governments should support the work of EHPs across the region and include them among key decision-making stakeholders.
