The Alliance for Healthy Cities is an international network aiming at protecting and enhancing the health of city dwellers. The Alliance is a group of cities and other organizations that try to achieve the goal through an approach called Healthy Cities with the close collaboration with the World Health Organization. We believe that international cooperation is an effective and efficient tool to achieve the goal. We also promote the interaction of people who are in the front lines of health and quality of life issues.
It is now expected that local governments from various countries and regions will participate in the Alliance as a mechanism for improving their capacity to respond to health and quality of life needs through the Healthy Cities approach. The Alliance will provide opportunities to share experiences of Healthy Cities, recognize and promote outstanding practices and innovations within Healthy Cities, mobilize resources for Healthy Cities, and develop new knowledge and technology for the advancement of Healthy Cities through international collaboration.
