City Health 2012 provides the opportunity to demonstrate the leading role that cities play in addressing issues associated with a large, complex, diverse, shifting population on a daily basis.
In highlighting examples of good practice the conference provides a high profile platform to advance the evidence base for public health to a number of significant audiences.
City Health 2012 will discuss and disseminate models of intervention, practical experience and research from across the world, acknowledging and recognising the impact of economic and cultural disparity and beliefs. The conference will be of interest to city officials, policy makers, industry, commerce, health planners, managers, practitioners and users of health services. Issues for the future public health will be hot topics in 2012, with the creation of Public Health England.
