Welcome to EcoHealth
The International Association for Ecology and Health, in short EcoHealth, is a scholarly organization with members from all continents. EcoHealth is committed to fostering the health of humans, animals and ecosystems and to conducting research which recognizes the inextricable linkages between the health of all species and their environments. A basic tenet held is that health and wellbeing cannot be sustained in a resource depleted, polluted and socially unstable planet. This is why EcoHealth scholars and practitioners engage in integrated systemic approaches to health that sustain ecosystem health services, foster social stability and promote the peaceful coexistence of humans, animals and their environments.
