This document reports the methods and findings of an operational research project designed to assess the impact of efforts to integrate natural resource management and reproductive health with comparison to stand-alone reproductive health and natural resource management programs. Although there were not significant differences in reproductive health or natural resource management indicators in the three program sites after the brief (less than 20 months) implementation period, the results suggest that the integrated approach used by World Neighbors-Philippines and its partners positively impacts community organization and empowerment, and generates active involvement of a broader segment of the community

Can people remain healthy in a world that is sick? Many ecological disasters can be directly traced to careless exploitation of the environment, with human beings as first perpetrator and then victim. Our health closely mirrors the health of our surroundings: this is the basis of the Ecohealth approach. It recognizes the links between humans and their biophysical, social, and economic environments, and that these links are reflected in the population's state of health. This is a new area of research, requiring input from scientists, community and interest groups, and decision-makers. This book describes this new approach, providing lessons and recommendations from various IDRC-supported research activities. It demonstrates how decision-makers, in particular, can use the ecohealth approach to formulate policies and solutions that are both immediately visible and sustainable over the long term
