The ecological model explores the impact of five systems on individual health outcomes: the individual (including physiology), the family/community, physical and social environments, healthcare systems and health policy.

Unlike the biopsychological model which represents a combination of three fields--biology, psychology and sociology - the ecological model includes research and findings from medical anthropology, economics, ethnopharmacology, environmental studies, medicine and public health, in addition to biology, psychology and sociology. Thus, it offers a truly interdisciplinary approach to the study of health. Finally, the text uniquely examines infectious diseases and chronic illnesses from a local, regional and global perspective.

The diverse perspectives illustrate the roles of each of the five systems on health.
