This fact sheet describes the Africa Biodiversity Collaborative Group’s (ABCG) integrated vision of global health, which links the health of wildlife populations, humans, domestic animals, and ecosystems.

ABCG, through its thematic working group, Global Health Linkages to Biodiversity Conservation, provides methodological guidance to advance a vision that incorporates health outcomes into biodiversity conservation and sustainable development. ABCG accomplishes this by developing integrated Population, Health and Environment  guidelines that identify and develop synergies between critical ecosystem services, and human health and well-being, and trialing these guidelines in two pilot sites in Western Tanzania and Southeastern Cameroon.
