European Journal of Public Health Supplement Papers: Influencing policy to maximise health gain in European cities

Vol. 27, Issue suppl_2, May 2017, pp. 123

Globally, the majority of people now live in urban areas. The focus of policy-makers should not just be on a narrow health perspective but also on the need to improve the environment, social status and quality of life of urban populations by all means possible. Multidisciplinary, trans-sectoral research into evidence-based policy-making, i.e. from bench to populations, is the only way to bring about real health gain for the global urban resident. ‘Health is wealth’ must be the rallying cry for all urban policy-makers.
