Healthy Cities: Health Equity in Sydney's Fastest Growth Area

Back to search results

The WHO 'Healthy Cities' programme for 30 years has brought together 1000s of cities around the world in value-based urban health planning and development. The realist synthesis approach to its evaluation that De Leeuw applied to a European network of 99 cities with a reach of some 450 million people (https://academic.oup.com/heapro/issue/30/suppl_1) can and must be applied to one of Australia's fastest growth areas - South Western Sydney. Rapid development (eg around the Western Sydney Airport, higher education, refugee health, Smart Cities, and high-tech health campus developments) raises concerns about sustainable and equitable health development in the growing population. Based in the Ingham Institute 'Urban Health Incubator' this research will be well embedded and supported.
