Urban Health
“We are at an unprecedented moment in human development as the greatest migration in history unfolds around us. Less than a decade ago a majority of humankind still lived in the countryside, yet today a clear majority live in urban areas. In 2030, 60% of all people will reside in cities, proportionally twice that of 1950. For most of us from now on, life and death will be an urban aff air.
The global community was not only waking up to this new demographic reality and the consequent implications for health, society, and economic and political aff airs, but also to a host of new opportunities as humans shape and are shaped by an urban future.”
(World Health Organization, 2016)
