Welcome to the International Association for Ecology and Health!

The International Association for Ecology and Health or the IAEH is a scholarly organization with members from all continents. The IAEH is committed to fostering the health of humans, animals and ecosystems and to conducting research which recognizes the inextricable linkages between the health of all species and their environments. A basic tenet held is that health and wellbeing cannot be sustained in a resource depleted, polluted and socially unstable planet. This is why ecohealth scholars and practitioners engage in integrated systemic approaches to health that sustain ecosystem health services, foster social stability and promote the peaceful coexistence of humans, animals and their environments.
