This third International City Health Conference, hosted by AIDS Foundation East-West (AFEW) and the Trimbos-instituut, organised by Knowledge•Action•Change, will take place over two days, at the Casa 400 Hotel, in Amsterdam, on 3rd and 4th November 2014.

The city of Amsterdam has a rich cultural history and today is home to vibrant, diverse communities. The city also boasts a proud tradition of innovation in public health, demonstrating the importance and effectiveness of city-level initiatives and interventions, to meet the needs of its citizens and visitors.

The conference will build on the achievements of previous City Health events and the programme will be designed to examine how cities around the globe respond to changing populations and adapt to changing health behaviours, to ensure and promote health and wellbeing to reflect diverse groups and cultures.

The hosts for the conference are both internationally acknowledged leaders in the field of public health and will use this to ensure the programme reflects current thinking and relates to current issues of concern for urban populations.
