Impact on Urban Health works to make urban areas healthier places for everyone that lives in them.
We do this by focusing on a few complex health issues that disproportionately impact people living in cities – children’s health and food, multiple long-term conditions, the health effects of air pollution, and children’s mental health.
Our programmes are long-term and formed of partnerships at local, borough, national and international scales. Using our funding and expertise, we back home-grown initiatives, evidence-based approaches from around the world, and exciting, brand-new ideas.
As a funder, we concentrate our efforts where evidence shows we will have the greatest impact and then layer up multiple initiatives that approach the issue from different angles.
Part of Guy’s & St Thomas’ Foundation, we work in the London boroughs of Lambeth and Southwark and share insights from their work to improve health in London and other global cities.
