Columbia Urban Health scientists partner with stakeholders who work toward improving the health of the millions of people living in cities and informal communities. Our goal is to develop organizational ties with the potential to enhance collaborative communication among research, design, and policy professionals, as well as with communities themselves. Our scientists work in cities around the world in four major areas:

1. Urban Climate and Disasters

2. Built Environment and Planning

3. Health and Urban Systems

4. Disease Risks in Cities
