Q: critically discuss 10 ways in which the environmental health hazards can impact negatively on one's health
A: The urban environment involves health hazards with an inequitable distribution of exposures and vulnerabilities, but it also involves opportunities for implementing interventions for health equity. [ The high population density in many poor urban areas means that interventions at a small scale level can assist many people, and existing infrastructure can sometimes be upgraded to meet health
demands. Interventions at higher policy levels that will create more sustainable and equitable living conditions and environments include improved city planning and policies that take health aspects into account in every sector. Health equity also implies policies and actions that improve the global living environment, for instance, limiting greenhouse gas emissions. In a global equity perspective, improving the living environment and health of the poor in developing country cities requires actions to be taken in the most affluent urban areas of the world. This includes making financial and technical resources available from high-income countries to be applied in low-income countries for urgent interventions for health equity. This is an abbreviated version of a paper on ?Improving the living environment? prepared for the World Health Organization Commission on Social Determinants of Health, Knowledge Network on Urban Settings. Mankind's greatest challenge in the next 50 years will be to begin the cleanup of the environment so that the species can survive. Even the most pristine areas of our environment are being catastrophically affected by acid rain, pesticides, nuclear radiation, airborne dioxins, and photochemical smog. ]
