"The declining condition of the natural environment is beginning to affect
the health of populations in many parts of the world.1–11 As a result, health
care professionals and organizations need to consider the long-term environmental
costs of providing health care and to reduce the material and energy
consumption of the health care industry. This may seem a surprising conclusion,
given that average human health has, for the most part, improved in recent decades
despite environmental decline. As indicated in the World Health Organization’s
50th anniversary report,12 the average life expectancy at birth worldwide has increased
rapidly (from 46 years in 1958 to an unprecedented 66 years in 1998), the
rate of death among children under 5 has decreased, more people than ever before
have access to at least minimal health care services, safe water and sanitation, and
new vaccinations and medications await wide distribution."
