Description

 

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.

 

Purpose

and ecosystems by promoting discovery, understanding and transdisciplinarity.
