Health is Everyone's Business
What is the Healthy Cities approach to health and wellbeing?
Many factors combine to affect our health – things like where we live, our environment, our genetics, our income and education level and our relationships with friends and family. All these things affect our lives and are known as ‘determinants of health’.
Most of the factors that shape our health and wellbeing are outside the direct influence of health and social care services.
Healthy Cities creates a support structure to address these wider influences at local level.
