World Environmental Health

The World Health Organization (WHO) is leading a global environmental health project that aims to improve public health in terms of illness prevention, infant and child mortality reduction, and morbidity reduction in developing nations. Without significant changes in actions and behavior, the planet would suffer greatly from global warming, according to a recent UN (United Nations) assessment.

Environmental health

The natural world, including the air, water, flora, animals, and people, is included in the concept of global environmental health. A sustainable world is one in which the demands of the present are satisfied without compromising the capacity of the needs of the future generations. Natural systems are allowed to develop, everyone has access to clean water and air, and people are treated morally and equally in a sustainable world. The very resources that our industrialized society is depleting are what we as people depend on. Long-term sustainability must be established since failing to do so will have a negative impact on both the health of the planet and its inhabitants as a whole.

Major global health problems

Environmental issues and pollution of all kinds must be addressed collectively because they are interconnected and affect one another. To lessen the effect of the environment on public health, a number of stakeholders and the community must collaborate.

Climate change

One of the major hazards that the whole world is facing is the drastic climate change. It is brought on by greenhouse gases, which trap solar heat and warm the earth’s surface; rising ocean temperatures, which have an impact on marine habitat and ecosystems; and a rise in global sea levels, which are to blame for dwindling land areas, widespread flooding, and extreme weather conditions.

Deforestation

It entails removing plants and trees that the public relies on for food, water, medicine, oxygen, and other necessities. Natural wildfires, illicit logging, agricultural operations, and the bulk harvesting of timber for commercial purposes are all threatening to destroy forests, deplete the oxygen supply, and significantly increase greenhouse gas emissions. The most intricate and important component of the ecosystems that make up the environment, which is in danger due to the acceleration of global warming, pollution, and deforestation, is biodiversity.

Pollution

It is one of the main reasons for environmental worries about biodiversity and climatic change. The environment is impacted by all forms of water, air, soil, radioactive, noise, light, and thermal pollution. Public health is negatively impacted by climate change, global warming, and the deterioration of air, soil, and water quality. A major issue that puts a burden on finances and puts both humans and marine life in danger is air and water pollution. Damage to priceless resources can be prevented by putting laws and strong regulations into place, as well as by educating people about pollution’s origins and effects.

Hazardous waste

It has become crucial to manage hazardous materials, dispose of garbage, clean up polluted sites, stop underground storage tank leaks, respond to emergencies, and stop the release of hazardous compounds into the environment. Enhancing waste management practices can reduce the risk of contaminating natural resources or accelerating the spread of diseases. Global industrialisation is transforming public living standards, which call for proper waste management and hygiene. Infectious diseases are frequently connected to the methods and materials used in industrial advancement.

World Environmental Health Day

The International Federation of Environmental Health (IFEH) Council observes World Environmental Day on September 26 every year to raise public awareness of various environmental health challenges.   The International Federation of Environmental Health (IFEH) is a global organization that advocates for the importance of environmental health and offers national organizations working for the same cause a single global platform.

The importance of environmental health day

Environmental health is regarded as health problems that exist outside of the body and environmental elements that could endanger human health by causing illness and disease. Numerous environmental problems, such as pollution, the greenhouse effect, climate change, urbanization, etc., are lowering the standard of the environment, including the air, water, food, and other resources necessary for daily survival. The primary purposes of international environment health day are to recognise the efforts of these organizations and to serve as a focal point for their work.The general people has to be informed about ways to reduce environmental health concerns and precautions to prevent infections. Many public and private organizations are making great efforts to increase food safety, cleanliness, access to clean water, and indoor and outdoor air quality so that their populations can live healthier lives.

What we must do to protect the environmental health

There are many ways to protect environmental health. Some of these are: 

  • Avoid environmental risks like noise, air and water pollution, secondhand smoke, and UV radiation for both you and other people.
  • When possible, take a walk or a bike ride instead of a car.
  • Reduce waste and recycle.
  • Utilize energy-efficient light bulbs and appliances to conserve energy.
  • Print less. Try reading online or distributing books among classmates.
  • Eat locally manufactured food.
  • Local farmers markets can be found in London.
  • Conserve water When shaving, doing your makeup, or washing dishes, turn off the water.
  • Turn off electronics, unplug them, and reduce the heat at home, school, and work.
  • When feasible, buy in bulk to cut down on packing waste.
  • When shopping, use paper bags or reusable bags.
  • Utilize cleaning supplies and personal care items that are toxic-free.
  • Become a member of a green organization.
  • Learn about environmental issues.
  • When leaving a room, turn off the lights and replace your light bulbs with more energy-efficient models. In addition to providing additional alternatives for excellent lighting, LED technology also uses far less energy than conventional light bulbs to illuminate a space.

Conclusion

Environmental well being includes both our interactions with the environment and the natural world as well as our interactions with our immediate surroundings. We feel more at ease and less stressed when our personal spaces are well-maintained, tidy, and organized. Being environmentally conscious improves your health personally and contributes to the long-term wellbeing of our societies.
