Urban Health and Equality

We are undertaking work on the relationship between the urban environment and health (and how to promote better health and wellbeing through planning and design) and on healthcare (specifically with regard to HIV/AIDS) and how this can be improved. These two streams of work are co-funded through the PEAK urban project and will continue until 2021. Key deliverables during 2019 are: two journal articles, and a presentation on health and sexuality at the American Association of Geographers conference in Washington DC in April 2019.
