In an article entitled “Cities better prepared for health emergencies” recently published in newSpecial, Geneva Cities Hub argues that increased investment to strengthen capacities and capabilities in urban health services, including health emergency preparedness and response are essential.

Cities’ voices need to be heard at the global discussion table, because urban health conditions might also be pre-determinant to the capacity to handle the consequences of a pandemic.

In the same edition, Mr. Christian David comments on the 2021 Annual Report of Geneva Cities Hub: “Villes et acteurs locaux dans le concert international”.
