OCHOA, Francisco Rojas. Health and Geography. Rev Cubana Salud Pública [online]. 2018, vol.44, n.3, e1379. ISSN 0864-3466.

The text refers to the contents of Geography as a science, its areas and the existence in the planet of the ´´human animal´´. It analyzes how this human animal (man), although its intelligence carry out non smart things as wars, terrorism, addictions with their consequent predatory and pollutant actions. These last have been studied by Geography as a science developing specialties as Human Geography and Health’s Geography. It is remarkable the existence and validity of Health’s Geography that deals with the changes in fertility patterns, migrations, pathogenic urbanism, unhealthy neighborhoods, lack of drinkable water, food and road insecurity, among others that represent risks and aggressions to health and that the specialist in this field analyzes as potential outbreaks of obesity, stress, violence and inequality. In the training of health workers should be included the study of this problems from the wide view that Health’s Geography offers.
