Scientific Summary No. 45, 2008
There is evidence that forests have positive effects on human health. In a seminar on Forests and Human Health held on 30 April 2008 in Marrakesh, Morocco, the IUFRO Task Force on Forests and Human Health, ForHealth, together with its partners and other actors in this field, presented latest results in this field and explored possibilities of cooperation between scientists and policy makers working with forest and human health issues. It was suggested that the Task Force join forces with already established stakeholders, such as COHAB (Co-Operation on Health And Biodiversity), and strengthen the forestry perspective in them.
