The many faces of ecohealth at the University of Guelph


We cannot have good health without a healthy environment. But a lot of the things we do to live better lives can damage the environment.
Ecosystem approaches have helped explore diverse health challenges around the world. Over the years, researchers from the University of Guelph have pushed the boundaries of ecohealth research and practice, often with support from IDRC. A recent article in the University’s magazine summarizes reflections of researchers who include IDRC’s Ecohealth program leader, Dominique Charron, an alumna of Guelph. In addressing the complex social and ecological interactions affecting human and animal health, sustainability and livelihoods, their work has benefitted communities in developing countries and in Canada.
