Pesticide Action Network (PAN) is a network of over 600 participating nongovernmental organizations, institutions and individuals in over 90 countries working to replace the use of hazardous pesticides with ecologically sound and socially just alternatives.
PAN was founded in 1982 and has five independent, collaborating Regional Centers that implement its projects and campaigns.
Pesticide Action Network (PAN) International is saddened by and concerned about the outbreaks of the mosquito-born illness, zika, and its possible link with microcephaly (babies born with reduced head circumference and associated brain development issues). We stand in solidarity with the families and children who are affected by microcephaly, and we join the call for national and international support for impacted families — and rigorous research to help reduce the rates of microcephaly.
We, as members of the international community from Asia and the Pacific, Africa, Latin America, Europe and the continental United States, convened by Pesticide Action Network, are gathered in Hawai`i in January 2016 to stand in solidarity with the movements in Hawai`i working to free the islands from the toxic influence of pesticide/genetic engineering (GE) corporations.
