Environmental Health Disparities and Environmental Justice. Environmental factors such as air and water quality are fundamental determinants of our health and well-being. Environmental factors can also lead to disease and health disparities when the places where people live, work, learn, and play are burdened by social inequities.
Health disparities come from a variety of factors such as individual behaviors, genetics and environmental risks. These differences are often related to social, economic and environmental disadvantages. Differences in health and health care between groups of people can be social justice and health equity issues.
The following APHA policy statements support the purpose of this statement by advocating on a range of environmental stressors arising from diverse workplace and community contexts, as well as on behalf of specific vulnerable populations. However, none of these policies holistically address the many facets of EJ as it relates to health equity.
Environmental factors such as air and water quality are fundamental determinants of our health and well-being. Environmental factors can lead to disease and health disparities when the places where people live, work, learn, and play are burdened by social inequities.
