About the Conference

ICUH provides the ideal forum for knowledge exchange for urban health stakeholders attracting multidisciplinary scientists, practitioners, development partners and various national and regional senior policymakers from around the world. With the ultimate goal to mobilise and energise like-minded professionals, ICUH will address the effects of urbanisation and urban environments on the health of urban populations.


The conference will last for four days, with the first day (Tuesday 4th March) focusing on site visits to health, educational, historic and cultural places of interest in and around the city.


The following three days (Wednesday 5th - Friday 7th March) will consist of a wide range of plenary lectures by world renowned guest speakers. There will also be hosted workshops, delegate speakers and posters selected through abstract submission. Delegates have access to all these facilities throughout the conference.


The workshop ‘Healthy & Livable Cities - Learning from Copenhagen’ is sponsored and operated by the International Federation for Housing and Planning.
