    The availabilty of biodiversity and well functioning ecosystems and its impact on human health is well acknowledged. What has been a challenge is to ensure that appropriate measures be taken at various levels of decision making that ensure the sustenance of this interconnectedness due to growing pressures from global changes including demographic, habitat and land use, technological and natural climatic variables. This programme undertakes to inform the science-policy-practice communities of the health consequences of disturbances to nature-human linkages, and further build capacities of multiple stakeholder groups to take appropriate actions relating to this area that is inclusive of various understandings of health and healthcare delivery .
