Health City Institute

The Health City Institute is an independent, non-partisan and non-profit health tank, born as a civic response to the urgent need to study the determinants of health in cities. Health is indeed a common good that calls upon everyone to adopt virtuous behaviours based on mutual respect, and the organization of cities and environments is able to condition and modify emerging needs, lifestyles and expectations of people. All factors that should be considered in the definition of public policies.

For this reason the Health City Institute is made up of a group of professionals from different fields, who work on a personal and pro bono basis to develop policy proposals and to identify the priorities on which to act to build healthy, equitable and sustainable cities. The Institute brings together people of the utmost integrity and motivated by a strong civic passion which place their skills at the service of the country, institutions and municipalities. HCI offers a permanent discussion platform on the study of health determinants in cities and access to comparative and global best practices and represents an independent and professional counterpart animated by public spirit, willing to work on specific projects and targeted actions for health promotion.

The Health City Institute counts on an international level network and is present in the 14 Metropolitan Cities and in the major Italian cities.

The Health City Institute joined EUPHA as an Institutional member in March 2023.
