Salud Urbana en América Latina (SALURBAL) or Urban Health in Latin America, is a five-year project launched in April 2017.
Researchers at Drexel University’s Dornsife School of Public Health and partners throughout Latin America and in the United States are working together to study how urban environments and urban policies impact the health of city residents throughout Latin America. Their findings aim to inform policies and interventions to create healthier, more equitable, and more sustainable cities worldwide.
SALURBAL is funded by the Wellcome Trust as part of its Our Planet, Our Health initiative, which focuses on research examining the connections between the environment and human health. The SALURBAL project is the main activity of the Urban Health Network for Latin America and the Caribbean.
