|Canada, Canadian Network of Toxicology Centres|
The Canadian Network of Toxicology Centres (CNTC), which was formed in 1988, is a national network of collaborating researchers from academia and government. The Network conducts environmental health-related research along well articulated and planned themes of interdisciplinary research. CNTC's program is intended to address Canada's need for timely, accurate, and unbiased data on environmental health risks associated with chemical agents and metals. An essential element of the CNTC approach is the development of methods that accurately measure hazards and reliability predict risks.

|France, Institute of Health Protection|
The National Institute for Public Health Surveillance (InVS), a governmental institution reporting to the Ministry of Health, is responsible for monitoring the health status of the entire French population and alerting public authorities of threats to public health
To accomplish this, InVS collects and analyzes epidemiologic data, a task requiring that it mobilizes, leads, and coordinates a public health network that includes healthcare professionals, research units, public and private healthcare facilities, health insurance funds, and patient and user associations.
InVS then provides these health surveillance data to the public authorities in the form of recommendations that help to direct and then assess health policies. This information also goes to healthcare professionals, who must implement these policies, and to the general population. This health surveillance is the expression
of democracy in health, the sharing of knowledge about hazards and risks, to promote health.
