City health profiles: a review of progress



City health profiles – a review of progress overviews health profiles by reviewing the literature, looking at some common queries about the process of producing profiles and summarizing the review of the profiles produced by cities participating in the WHO Healthy Cities project. The book explores the different processes through which profiles can describe and address inequity at a local level with examples. A chapter reviews how information on lifestyles can be included in health profiles. The last chapter examines community health profiles and what they mean. It also includes examples of some methods used to develop them and how these profiles were used.
