Forests as Preventive Medicine: Our First Line of Defense Against Disease

Did you know healthy forests play an essential role in keeping people healthy? Forests are our first line of defense against risks to people related to infectious diseases like malaria and Lyme disease as well as noncommunicable diseases such as heart disease. They can also improve air and water quality and abate risks of death or disease from physical hazards, including flooding, extreme heat and wildfires. Covering one-third of the world’s land area and home to more than three-quarters of life on land, forests are inextricably linked to safeguarding human health. In this webinar, Annika Terrana—WWF manager for forests—discusses some of these connections, with a special focus on emerging infectious diseases, the pressures our forests are facing, and what we can all do to restore and maintain some of the best preventive medicine nature has to offer.
