Cities, Health and Well-being

Urbanisation is associated with improvements in income levels and health outcomes. At the same time, the pressures of urban growth have contributed to the emergence of stark social and health inequalities in cities of the developed and developing world. The Urban Age Hong Kong conference explored urban health at both regional and global levels, with a focus on health and well-being implications of urban density, its planning and design.
