Healthy Municipalities, Cities and Communities Movement

The Healthy Municipalities, Cities and Communities Movement (HMCC) of the Americas is a regional platform of local governments made up of cities, municipalities, cantons, communes, and communities.

It is led by mayors and mayors' offices and is constituted as an integral and integrating network in which the different health initiatives that are implemented synergistically at the local level have a place. This platform offers a great opportunity to build strategic alliances and partnerships with other actors engaged in health and wellness.

A Healthy Municipality is committed to improving health, well-being, and equity through the implementation of healthy, intersectoral and participatory public policies. Each healthy municipality should be based on the values of the universal right to health, social justice, gender equality, solidarity, inclusion, and sustainable development.
