The role of the Association is to increase the awareness of the decision makers to health at the local level. The Association has contacts with local, national and international institutions with expertise on health and wellbeing supporting Healthy Cities networks. To promote the health of the cities, WHO and Association have agreed to work with local institutions and organisations to share the best practices and expertise. E.g. member organisations of the Association (City of Turku, University of Turku, Åbo Akademi University and Social Insurance Institution of Finland) provide expertise to support the Healthy Cities’ goals in the region. They have competence on various research fields. The Association has organised in previous years several projects and activities together with them.

The operational area of the Association is the whole Baltic Sea Region. Important partners of the Association are:

  • WHO Healthy Cities Networks
    - WHO European Healthy Cities Network
    - Sub-networks on Healthy Cities themes
