Tracking urban overall health policies
To improve overall health co-added benefits across urban policies which tackle air pollution and climate adjust, WHO, in cooperation with numerous international, national, and nearby partners, implemented the Urban Well being Initiative (UHI) pilot project in Accra, Ghana. The Initiative prompted the overall health sector to use its influential position to demonstrate to selection-makers and the public the complete variety of overall health, environmental and financial added benefits that can be accomplished from implementing nearby emission reduction and power access policies and approaches. Policy tracking, while not normally viewed as, is a basic element of this process. It assesses the preparing, implementation and progress of a policy to refine or adjust policies with the final objective of growing the likelihood of the policy becoming productive. This report is an outcome of the final element of the UHI model method, Policy tracking and monitoring outcomes. The report proposes a framework for tracking urban overall health policies, with a specific concentrate on the impacts of air high-quality and power access on human overall health and nicely-becoming in African nations, providing some examples from the pilot project in Accra. The report also supplies sources to survey air high-quality in cities and other tools to assess public overall health and the environmental impacts of urban policies and monitor or track their effects.
