Urban Health Equity Assessment and Response Tool

Urban HEART is a user-friendly guide for local and national officials to identify health inequities and plan actions to reduce them. Using evidence from WHO’s Commission on Social Determinants of Health, Urban HEART encourages policy-makers to develop a holistic approach in tackling health equity.

Since the launch of the pilot programme in 2008, Urban HEART has been pilot-tested in cities in Brazil, Indonesia, Islamic Republic of Iran, Kenya, Malaysia, Mexico, Mongolia, Philippines, Sri Lanka and Viet Nam. Till 2011, officials in nearly 50 countries have been trained on using Urban HEART.
