International Conference on Urban Health
Through its annual International Conference on Urban Health (ICUH) and program activities, the ISUH serves as a platform for interdisciplinary academic researchers and educators, practitioners and policymakers from multiple sectors in government and the private sector.
We welcome you to join our international network of interdisciplinary urban health researchers, policymakers, practitioners, business leaders, and grassroots community advocates to exchange ideas, advance research and drive action across sectors, transforming urban environments to improve health, equity, and environmental sustainability in cities worldwide.
IMPORTANT - We have been made aware of another organization advertising The International Research Conference's ICUH 2023 International Conference on Urban Health in Vienna. This is NOT our conference and we want to be sure all those interested in attending do not mistakenly think they are signing up for our conference.

19th International Conference on Urban HealthGrowing Our Global Community. Driving Action. Ensuring Equity.
The International Society for Urban Health (ISUH) is delighted to invite you to join our 19th International Conference on Urban Health (ICUH) taking place in Atlanta, USA, 6-9 November 2023.
There is a growing body of urban health research and evidence, yet gaps exist in knowledge generation, translation, and application for urban design and health practice. Cross-sectoral collaboration and multidisciplinary training and action are needed to better bridge disciplines and better define urban health within a global context. The ICUH serves as a key convergence point to advance and support the generation, exchange, and application of urban health programs and policies.
The theme for ICUH 2023 is Turning Evidence into Impact: Urban Health as a Driver of Greater Equity and Social Justice. During this year’s conference, we connect a uniquely global network of leaders working to advance urban health to discuss how evidence can be translated into action and impact that drive greater equity and social justice in cities across the globe.
Join us as we unpack the mobilization of resources to support the management and development of health and equity supporting cities, today and for future generations.
We’ve gathered the world’s leading experts and minds to explore models of planning cities to support all ages, from 8 to 80 and beyond.
Working with leading researchers, urban planners, private innovators, investors and non-governmental and multi-lateral bodies, we will identify the most promising transdisciplinary solutions for combating disparities, addressing mental health, designing neighborhoods that optimally support comprehensive health, well-being and equity for all residents within the greater context of climate change justice and other pressing global agendas.
