Healthy City Projects in Developing Countries An International Approach to Local Problems

by Edmundo Werna

Healthy City Projects in Developing Countries An International Approach to Local Problems Synopsis

With the growth of cities and towns throughout the developing world have come significant health problems. The urban poor are particularly affected, faced with the worst of both worlds: urban problems such as pollution and stress, combined with infectious diseases common in both rural and urban areas. The Healthy City Project shows how to put health high on the agenda of urban officials, integrating it into all other planning and development decisions. Healthy City Projects in Developing Countries presents a comprehensive account of this very important and increasingly influential initiative. Drawing on experience in a range of cities it shows how to design, implement and evaluate the integration of public health into urban management. The results will be very significant to all those making and implementing urban policies, as well as those working in and on public health, urban development and environmental issues.
