The global community is dogged with a number of complex issues which humanity cannot just sit around and ignore disease being one of them. Disease has ailed humanity since time immemorial. It is part of the wide complex globalized world that is characterized by forces which work behind the scenes that make life an interesting phenomenon. To some extent, this problem stems from human activities with regard to how humans relate with each other, with the ecosystem in terms of where they work and live as well as their global and also economic activity (186).
In the recent past different organizations and individuals have raised an alarm about how human activities are negatively affecting the environment. A case in point is the global climate change that has been a major concern for not only the first world but also the globe at large. It is through human activity that this has come into being and has really contributed to the fact that many diseases have come up which are directly influenced by the environment. The increasing population is also negatively impacting the globe a great deal (129).
It does not just stop there; disease originates from one place and spreads to other parts of the world more easily today than ever before. Urbanization and more so air travel and migration are to blame because transportation helps transfer micro organisms, bacteria fungi and even viruses from one place to another( 204). Humanity has played a very critical role in this circus of the spread of diseases through the way in which they utilize the environment a fact if they will not be careful, will lead to a lot of problems which they cannot contain in the long run.
