Health, Safety & Animals

CAUSES:

Health, Safety & Animals

Good health requires social respect, self respect, fresh air, good nutrition, safe environments and a feeling of usefulness. The health and safety of a region includes the way we treat and value all life, including that of animals and wildlife.

Health and safety depends on a variety of resources. The essentials are safe and affordable water, food, and shelter. Other factors that help create sustainable health include protection from infection, safe work environments, and economic stability. To achieve this, people need to have the ability to control their own destiny, including the ability to adequately care for themselves. This requires education and understanding, as well as access to proper healthcare. A sustainable community requires a shared responsibility in the health of the community – individuals must be full participants in maintaining their own health and that of their children, and programs must be readily available that provide access to needed healthcare.
