CITIES AND WOMEN’S HEALTH: GLOBAL PERSPECTIVES

The aim of the Penn-ICOWHI 18th Congress, Cities and Women’s Health: Global Perspectives, is to deconstruct urban planning in terms of its potential to better support women’s health. When structuring an urban environment conducive to promoting and preserving women’s health, we must give up the assumption that the needs of women are the same as for men in order to understand the health needs of women in cities. In fact, there are remarkable opportunities to have profound impact on meeting the unique needs of urban women by bringing together professionals from all facets of health care, health policy and urban design, among others, to open interdisciplinary discussions about their work.
