    Abstract Following the launch of a new initiative by WHO addressing electronic waste and child health, the United Nations University (UNU), which hosts the Solving the E-waste Problem (StEP) Initiative, and WHO carried out an on-line survey with a wider body of experts. The survey aimed to identify existing knowledge and key stakeholders working on e-waste and child health that could contribute to and benefit from the new initiative’s findings. International experts were invited to contribute to this initiative by responding to a short on-line survey within a 4 week time-frame. The findings were discussed in a closed WHO working meeting on e-waste and child health, held in Genève between the 11-12 June 2013. The survey highlighted the need for joint action to tackle health issues related to e-waste management around the world.
