International Conference on Urban Health, October 27-29, NY

The principal theme to be addressed at the Ninth International Conference on Urban Health, Oct 27-29, 2010in New York City will be good governance for healthy cities, with special interest in the positive consequences in urban health interventions, as well as the social and public health policies that are required to address these issues.

The conference will address how governments can develop and implement policy that improves the health of all urban residents and reduces urban inequities. Although governance and health are the focus, these issues will be examined in a multitude of sectors: health services, violence and security, transportation and injuries, housing and infrastructure, neighborhoods and the urban environment, reproductive and maternal child health, the social determinants of health, substance use and homeless populations, and still others.
