Human health and well being are intimately tied to the health of life-sustaining ecosystems, yet this complex relationship is rarely taken into account in either mainstream health or natural resource programming. Health is given even less weight in international trade agreements and practices. Ecosystem approaches to human health research aims to identify the web of ecologically based factors affecting human health – as well as the links between them. Equipped with this knowledge, local communities can better manage ecosystems to improve people’s health and the health of the ecosystem. Interventions developed using this approach can make a cost-effective contribution to improving human health in developing countries.
