  • Introduction

    Environment, water and health constitute an indispensable matrix affecting human health. The new scenario evolving in all our three major ecosystems, Earth-Air-Aqua (EAA), is highly dreadful as more and more different kinds of illnesses, both communicable and non-communicable, are surfacing the world over with a blitzkrieg pace. The current physic-chemical quality of the EAA is playing a key role in the transmission of a large number of deadly and debilitating diseases. While on one hand, the world is facing a tough situation like global warming and climate change are considered an inevitable reality. The climate quality is a critical public health issue that many major public health organizations in the world have concerns on rapid changes in the climate and it also aggravates some existing non-communicable diseases like cancer, cardiovascular diseases, respiratory and cerebrovascular disease, moreover, rising carbon dioxide level and warmer temperatures also affect airborne allergens. On the other hand, the vector-borne diseases like dengue, chikungunya and west nile virus have been intensified both in time and space. Communicable infections like Ebola, Zika, Swine flu and MERS are threatening to invade new horizons. Physicians and health care providers will need to address at the primary level the negative health outcomes and infectious and non-infectious diseases associated with climate change and pollution. It is our goal to prevent various health behavior related diseases and create dependable health supportive environment. Therefore, in view of this following objectives are focused.

    Aims and Scope:
    Climate Change/Global Warming- Greenhouse Gas Emissions
    Environmental Pollution And Behavior Related Health Issues
    Extreme Weather Patterns (Rainfall, Temperature, Wind, Etc)
    Emergence And/Or Re-Emergence Of Communicable & Non-Communicable Diseases
    Control / Elimination Of Vector-Borne Diseases (Vbds)
    Advanced Diagnosis And Treatment Of Vbds
    Environmental Biotechnology
    Ecological Engineering
    Environmental Management System (EMS)
    Renewable Energy Technologies
