Watch the recording of the 'Academies of science and medicine: Actions to advance urban health' webinar


The global and national focus on cities has been magnified by the COVID-19 pandemic, not only for what concerns its impact on urban public health and healthcare systems, but also on urban planning and space use, public transport, housing, socioeconomic development and health disparities in vulnerable communities.

As cities and countries move through the epidemic, seeking lessons learned that can be applied to “building back better” across sectors within cities and nations, the InterAcademy Partneship (IAP) carried out a systematic review of current work by national academies of science and medicine on the broad determinants of urban health. The key findings of the study (available here), plus recommendations, were presented on 5 October 2022 during the IAP Global Webinar ‘Academies of science and medicine: Actions to advance urban health’.
