The Ecological Model in health education focuses attention on the individual as well as the social environmental factors as the targets for any interventions. This model shows how influences on all different levels interrelate, and add to a health problem. Health is influenced on multiple levels.
For this Discussion, consider the problem of global water scarcity, and explore how different levels of influence may contribute to the problem and interact with each other.
With these thoughts in mind:
Post 4-5 pages of a description of the environmental problem of water scarcity. Then, based on the core principles of the Ecological Model, explain how the multiple levels of influence contribute to the problem and interact with each other. Finally, describe a basic environmental health intervention and explain how it might be applied at each level of influence.
