Excerpt: “Integrated health, on the other hand, represents an approach to individual and population health which respects and includes all areas, such as the physical and social environment, education, agriculture and architecture. I know that this is a somewhat wider definition of integration than commonly used, but I want to argue that a successful health service needs to embrace this broader and more complex concept of integration.”
Glad to see the health reference to the physical environment and architecture.
