Zagreb Declaration for Healthy Cities

October 06, 2016

This Declaration expresses the clear and strong commitment of political leaders of cities in Europe to strengthen and champion action on health, health equity, sustainable development and social justice. It celebrates and builds on 20 years of knowledge, experience and public health accomplishments of the European Healthy Cities movement. It highlights continuing action and value priorities and identifies new challenges, evidence and approaches, such as outlined in the final report of the Commission on Social Determinants of Health, for cities to address and adopt as they work to protect and enhance the health and well-being of all their citizens. It reviews plans and priorities for Phase V (2009–2013) of the WHO European Healthy Cities Network and national healthy cities networks in Europe and identifies how regional and national governments and WHO can support and benefit from these approaches.
