Template:Release The Multiple Exposure-Multiple Effect (MEME) model emphasizes the many-to-many links between environment and health. Exposures, in different environmental settings (on the left) lead to many different health effects (on the right). Individual health effects (on the right) can be traced back to many different exposures (on the left). Both exposures and health outcomes — as well as the associations between them — are affected by contextual conditions, such as social, economic or demographic factors.Actions can be targeted at either exposures or health outcomes (and in the longer term, also, at the underlying contexts).
