Taking cities to a healthier future
The European Urban Health Conference will showcase the results of our extensive research into individual level urban health indicators. The EURO-URHIS 2 study, which was co-funded by the EU Commission, has resulted in the largest depository of individual level urban health data in the world and the conference will be the first chance to see the results and some of the conclusions from the analysis, with a view to helping develop urban health policy.
The EURO-URHIS 2 study encompasses 44 cities in 14 different countries from the European Union and beyond. Nearly 50,000 people have been surveyed on over 100 indicators of urban health. As a result, we have the first directly comparable data on urban health indicators between different urban areas.
