DescriptionIn order to facilitate the on-going debate on the interplay of forests and human health, IUFRO launched a Task Force on Forests and Human Health, ForHealth. The Task Force ran from 2007-2011. The Task Force was coordinated by Metla. Its purpose was to support the cross-sectoral dialogue between the different players in this field, especially forestry and health professionals. It aimed to bring a global perspective to the activities carried out at the European level. The Task Force had two priority areas: (1) maximizing health benefits of forests; and (2) managing health risks connected with forests.
