Cities of Opportunity: Partnerships for an Inclusive and Sustainable Future
PDF File Size: 2.26 MB | Download   
Urban conditions are significant part of determinants of health of people living in cities. Urbanization grows rapidly where people migrated for social and economic purposes. Urban life-style however is not always healthy for majority of people, especially the poor. Urban development brings opportunities and challenges where skylines emerged along with crowded slums, uncontrollable flow of populations, and needs for pollution controls and waste management. People living in cities, close to modern technologies and medicine, however have no guarantees of access to health services because of their prices and other social and economic obstacles; no guarantee to clean and safe drinking water and sanitation; no guarantee to access to adequate and healthy diets, or physical activities since people focus their time on earning for living. To address health of urban population, one must think of city beyond a material environment and container for livelihood, but of the people living in it. Multi-sectoral interventions and coordination are important to ensure health of urban populations.
