Established on 4 November, 1990, Environment and Public Health Organization (ENPHO) envisages to create eco-societies by providing quality services on Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH), environment and public health. Research, innovations and promotion of the WASH technologies and approaches have been the core priorities of ENPHO.

ENPHO, a service oriented, scientific, national non-governmental organization, is constantly striving towards sustainable community development, demonstration and dissemination of eco-friendly technologies including drinking water treatment options and sustainable sanitation systems. ENPHO promotes integrated community based approaches for safe water, sustainable sanitation, hygienic behavior, improving indoor air, and environmental and air quality monitoring for creating healthy and environment friendly societies.
