Sandwell joins worldwide health network
1:00pm Sunday 11th August 2013 in News
SANDWELL has become the newest member of a worldwide network committed to improving health in urban areas.
The status has come after a successful application was made to the World Health Organisation’s UK Healthy Cities Network which gives access to the latest international and UK know how.
Support for Sandwell includes grappling with issues such as the growing number of hot food takeaways near schools and the growth of shisha smoking.
Cabinet member for health and wellbeing Councillor Paul Moore said: "This is all about sharing best practices and I am pleased we have been accepted."
