What is Galway Healthy Cities?
Galway City has been a member of the World Health Organization (WHO) European Healthy Cities Network since 2006. The main goal of the WHO Healthy Cities programme is to put health and wellbeing high on the social, economic and political agenda of all agencies.
The Galway Healthy Cities Forum oversees and guides the Galway Healthy Cities Programme, and includes representatives from a range of local agencies including:
- Galway City Community Network
- Galway City Council
- NUI Galway
- Galway and Roscommon Education and Training Board
- An Garda Síochána
- Galway Chamber
The lead agency of the Programme is HSE Health Promotion and Improvement. A project co-ordinator is responsible for the day-to-day implementation of the work plan in Galway City.
