A Health Commons is a nascent conceptual model,
which include the collective resources within a defined geographic boundary that
can treat disease and promote health. Another way of considering a health commons is our subjective "sense of place".
A health commons can include medical technologies,
healthcare facilities and clinicians but also include healthy food systems,
access to drinking safe drinking water, safe and affordable housing, livable
jobs, parks, and other social determinants of health. A health commons can be
sub-divided into subsets, of intersecting commons.
