Environmental factors have a role to play across the spectrum of the quadruple burden of ill health that presently characterizes South Africa. Nearly two decades after the dismantling of apartheid, an assessment of the environmental health situation in South Africa shows a mixed picture of gains and lost opportunities. On the positive side there has been much progress made in building the legal framework needed to prevent environmental pollution, and to act against polluters. However, too many communities in South Africa still continue to face exposure to hazards such as polluted air,23 lead, and mercury from industrial and other sources.
