Imagine Lethbridge-Healthy Lethbridge means healthy people in a healthy society on a healthy planet

The concept of healthy communities has been around for centuries, but was given its modern form with the advent of WHO’s Healthy Cities initiative in 1986. From the outset it was clear that the health of the city's people requires healthy physical and social environments; community engagement and strong intersectoral partnerships; and public and private sector policies that create such conditions. Only then can people be expected to make healthy choices and be supported in leading healthy lives.
