Social and Ecosystem Health
Understanding the social and ecosystem causes of human disease is essential for developing and implementing effective public health policies. This course draws together two important emerging areas of public health: social determinants of health inequality and the ecosystem health perspective (Ecohealth). 'Sustainable' human health depends upon healthy ecosystems. Yet ecosystems around the world are deteriorating under increasing pressure from human activity and patterns of consumption. Analysing the links between public health, ecosystems and social/cultural contexts offers guidance for addressing the dual threat to environmental and human health.
