One Health & Planetary Health

From the environmental impacts of healthcare services, the ways health is tied to social and ecological determinants of health, and the ways that human health is inextricably linked to the health of other species, land, water, and air, climate change is integral to research in the health and medicine fields.

Healthcare's impact: "In Canada, the healthcare industry is responsible for more than four and a half per cent of greenhouse gas emissions - equivalent to the aviation industry." UBC Planetary Healthcare Lab

Planetary health: "Planetary health is an emerging and multidisciplinary field that is informed by environmental health, ecosystem approaches to health, built environment, planning, earth sciences, agriculture and many other fields." SFU Planetary Health

One health: "One Health is an approach that recognizes that the health of people is closely connected to the health of animals and our shared environment. One Health is not new, but it has become more important in recent years. This is because many factors have changed interactions between people, animals, plants, and our environment."  Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
