Healthy Cities

The UK Healthy Cities Network is part of a global movement for urban health that is led and supported by the World Health Organization (WHO). Its vision is to develop a creative, supportive and motivating network for UK cities and towns that are tackling health inequalities and striving to put health improvement and health equity at the core of all local policies.

Healthy Cities engage local authorities and their partners in health development through a process of political commitment, institutional change, capacity-building, partnership-based planning and innovative projects. Healthy Cities seek to apply Health for All principles such as equity, empowerment, intersectoral collaboration and community participation through local action in urban settings. The city of Swansea has achieved Healthy City status.
