Healthy Environments

The neighbourhood and community environments in which people live, work and play greatly influence the ability of people to make healthy choices and to live in good health. Health care is more than treating disease; we have to prevent diseases before they start. Local governments and their community partners play a pivotal role in developing health-promoting environments and communities: for example, through policies and programs for smoke-free spaces or neighbourhood planning that supports pedestrian friendly principles.
