Health :: E97-8/2003E

an ecosystem approach /

Many ecological disasters can be directly traced to careless exploitation of the environment, with human beings as first perpetrator and then victim. Our health closely mirrors the health of our surroundings: this is the basis of the “Ecohealth” approach. It recognizes the inextricable links between humans and their biophysical, social, and economic environments, and that these links are reflected in a population’s state of health.
