The HEALTHY CITIES: HEALTHY WOMEN conference series promoted discussions about re-envisioning our communities to make them universally safer, healthier and more livable for women and their families around the world. Although much is known about the health of women, the practice of public health and the related effects of living in an urban environment, less is known about the intersection of these three subjects: urban women's health. Over half of the world's population currently lives in cities, and the numbers are ever-increasing. Women and girls make up half of that urban population, and face unique challenges in healthy urban living. They also have a singularly powerful role in positively influencing the health of their children, families and communities.
Past events have taken place in Miami, New York, Los Angeles, London, Washington DC and Philadelphia.
