The environment an individual is exposed to and interacts
with each day influences the individual’s health and quality of life. Providing healthy environments can prevent
disease, injury, and disability. According to the World Health Organization website, 23% of global deaths are due to modifiable environmental factors. Since
many individuals interact with several different environments throughout their
day, providing a healthy environment for an individual includes addressing the environment
in homes, in workplaces, at schools, and throughout the community.
