This short paper outlines how intervening in the disruption to wetland ecosystem services will improve human health and help address the Millenium Development Goals. It also discusses systemic consequences, where addressing the MDGs (principally by the interventions imposed by other sectors) will need to be aware of the relationship between human health and wetland ecosystem health.
