Future Africa at the University of Pretoria
Invites you to attend

A Dialogue on Informal Settlements
Designing for health and healthy people
presented by the Community Orientated Primary Health Care (COPC) Research Unit

The Future Africa Dialogue Series is aimed at reconnecting with the Future Africa Community, partners and networks

A health city is "one that continually creates and improves its physical and social environments and expands the community resources that enable people to mutually support each other in performing all the functions of life and developing to their maximum potential" World Health Organisation (WHO). Indicators of a healthy city include: a commitment to health that encompasses policy, intersectoral collaboration; political activation, community participation and involvement of industry for innovation. It is clear that this requires a multi-sectoral trans-disciplinary approach. This dialogue will explore the learnings from an inter and trans disciplinary urban and informal-settlement primary health care presented by a team consisting of medical doctors, dieticians, architects, and agriculturalists. It will engage with communities, government, private sector, non-profit organisations, and other academic and national institutions to create a network for strategic planning and implementation towards a healthy city.
