EcoHealth - One Health Commission





International Association for Ecology & Health




The International Association for Ecology & Health (abbreviated as EcoHealth)

is a professional organization that promotes research, education and practice

(including policy development) on the linkage between human health,

conservation medicine and ecosystem sustainability. The specific objectives of

EcoHealth are to: serve a diverse international community including scientists,

educators, policy makers, practitioners and the general public; provide

mechanisms and forums to facilitate international and interdisciplinary discourse

(e.g., through publication of the journal EcoHealth and by holding biennial

conferences); encourage development of transdisciplinary teaching, research

and problem-solving that cut across many fields of scholarship and draws upon

multiple types of knowledge.




The mission of EcoHealth is to strive for sustainable health of people, wildlife

and ecosystems by promoting discovery, understanding and transdisciplinarity.
