  • What the city can do to improve our health

    Where you live in a city defines how healthy you are. Often, we think of health in terms of hospitals and clinics: matters for the province to look after. Yet, the environment in which we live, work and play has an enormous impact on our health. No level of government has as much power to directly shape these factors as the city. Health is a city hall issue and in no area is this more obvious than chronic diseases like heart disease, diabetes and osteoporosis.

About CHI

  • City Health International +

    Founded in 2012 City Health International is a collaboration between individuals and organisations engaged in the study of and response to structural health issues and health behaviours in the urban environment. For the first time in history the majority of the world’s population now live in urban environments and the proportion continues to grow. As national governments struggle to deal with the pressures and demands of growing urban populations against a backdrop of financial deficits and uncertainty, it is increasingly left to those working at a city level to provide the leadership and support needed to tackle key health issues.
