More than half of the world’s population live in urban areas. However, cities often struggle with prioritizing agendas to ensure the physical and mental well-being of their citizens where they live, work, shop and play. In light of COVID-19, the need to empower consumers – preventatively – to lead healthy lives is critical because non-communicable diseases are rising faster in cities than elsewhere. City governments cannot solve this challenge alone and need leadership from business, civil society and academia.
