Geography and health are linked to each other such as where we are born, live, study and work all these directly influences our health experiences. The air we breathe, the food we eat and the health services we can access. Geographical investigations of the spatial variation of diseases provide important insights into what contributes to disease outcomes and options for prevention. This means that health is a resource to help an individual perform their function in society, rather than an end in itself. Healthy lifestyle allows us to live a full life with meaning and purpose. The social, built and natural environment affect our health and wellbeing in ways that are directly relevant to health policy. Health geography is a sub discipline of human geography, which deals with the interaction between people and the environment.
