Improving URBan HEALTH trainingS for technicians and trainers

Urban environments pose public health challenges. URB_HealthS creates training for the local officials developing policies and programmes to address these challenges.


URB_HealthS will work to produce training material about urban health for municipal officials and professionals, so they can take appropriate action. The broad impact of our built environment on public health, especially on vulnerable populations such as the elderly, needs to be addressed through active policies and multisectoral programmes promoting healthier communities and cities. Building on previous work to identify key experts, URBS-HealthS will organise working groups of multidisciplinary experts to generate training material on regulations, techniques, strategies and experiences related to urban health. The material is meant to be useful for local government officials from different areas and will be validated in training sessions for municipal technicians and professionals, and/or future trainers.
