Aim of the network/project

The European Urban Health Indicators System Part 2 (EURO-URHIS 2) project commenced on 1st January 2009. The project followed on from EURO-URHIS, which developed a network of 60 urban areas across Europe. The EURO-URHIS initiative sought to find the availability of many health indicators across Europe, and to describe some features of health that, whilst not specific only to urban situations, have a major impact on the health of urban residents.

The EURO-URHIS 2 project has resulted in the largest set of individual level Urban Health Indicators in the world. These indicators have been analysed for the urban areas involved in the project and Health Profiles have been created. Please follow the relevant links to find download the Health Profiles and view the interactive results at our results website.
