As defined by WHO, environmental health covers those health aspects of present and future generations that depend on the chemical, physical, biological and psychosocial factors of the environment. Effective action to improve the health of the society and its natural environment must take place mainly within the close collaboration of the health and environment ministries, but also within other non-governmental areas of activity. Regarding the concept of healthy population in a healthy environment, it is necessary to present the current situation in as much detail as possible, and to outline the possible directions of development. The aim of the paper is to analyse the report titled 'The Health and Social Benefits of Nature and Biodiversity Protection' published by the Institute for European Environmental Policy. With numerous references to the particular problems of integrating health and ecology, the report is the first of its kind on a continental scale. The conclusions it presents, related to numerous research studies, should provide a boost to their practical implementation. In relation to the body of the report, the paper discusses the concept of environmental public health and provides a brief description of environmental health awareness of modern man. In the summary we flagged the need to draw attention to the problems that remain unaddressed in the report but that bind the environmental environment with human health. (original abstract)
