World Health Day 2010

Urbanism and Healthy Living

World Health Day 2010 is dedicated to urbanization and health. The campaign highlights the impact of urban living on human health and encourages efforts to make cities healthier places for people to live.

Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) is the world’s most urbanized region, with more than three-quarters of its 433 million people living in cities. It is also the world’s most inequitable region, with more than 190 million people living in poverty. A large percentage of these poor live in urban slums or neighborhoods blighted by problems linked to rapid, unplanned urbanization.
