HvA Urban Vitality
We are facing many major lifestyle challenges. More than 30% of people who live in Amsterdam suffer from co-morbid (and sometimes chronic) diseases, the population is aging and the ‘public health gap’ is increasing, meaning that highly educated residents live longer and stay healthier than those with low levels of education or on low incomes.
Through its Urban Vitality program, AUAS seeks to address these challenges so that vitality is brought within reach of all of those living in Amsterdam.
