"HEALTH PROMOTION in the City," a report prepared for CDC, is a review of current practice and recommendations for new directions to improve the health of urban populations. The report describes social and economic factors that have influenced the health of urban populations during the previous 40 years, assesses the extent to which existing interventions address major causes of ill health, and explores new sources for theory and practice for urban health promotion. The report suggests specific actions that community leaders and organizations, local and state health departments, public health officials, federal agencies, foundations, and universities can take to strengthen health promotion practices in urban communities in the United States.
