Welcome to the Urban Public Health Network (UPHN) website. The UPHN is a national organization established in 2004 which today includes the Medical Officers of Health in 24 of Canada’s large urban centres. Working collaboratively and with a collective voice, the network addresses public health issues that are common to urban populations.
Our cities, neighbourhoods and communities are the primary settings in which we live our lives and realize our health. This study provides a descriptive portrait of income-related health inequalities in the largest cities in each of Canada’s provinces.
