Environmental changes are drivers for emerging
disease: How can this ‘linkage’ be used to improve
environmental awareness and global health?
Land-use and climate change, degradation and human encroachment into wild areas, urbanization,
and environmental chemical pollution are some of the anthropogenic impacts that drive both
infectious and non-communicable diseases globally. In the face of increasing evidence showing
these linkages, now seems to be the time for individuals and organizations that are committed to
global health, One Health/EcoHealth, conservation and environmental sustainability to join forces.
This panel will share their perspectives from human and veterinary medicine, biological anthropology,
and urban planning as well as their experiences tackling complex health challenges to consider a
paradigm shift in global health training that integrates environmental awareness.
