The Urban health governance (UHG) area of work encompasses the generation of evidence on interventions to address urban health and health equity, including both the actions and the political processes needed to achieve successful implementation of health policies. The aim is to provide advice to policymakers in the form of guidelines, lessons learnt and recommendations derived from the analysis of existing or generated evidence.
