Welcome to the website of 'Brussels Healthy City Region' !
The Brussels Capital Region has been a member of the World Health Organisation, European network of Healthy Cities since 2001, at the request of the Brussels government ministers and the community councils. The main goal is to promote citizens' health and well-being by encouraging and enabling citizens' participation and mobilisation. The project 'Brussels, Healthy City-Region' is now led by the Brussels-Capital Health and Social Observatory (the Research Centre for the Joint College services of the Joint Community Commission), and is under reconstruction as well as this website. The history of the project from 2001 to 2013, however, remains accessible.
