Building Healthy Cities (BHC) project aims to embed a health equity lens into city policies, planning, and services while improving data flow for existing Smart Cities in India, Indonesia and Vietnam. Health and Smart Cities planning are related; decisions about transport, environment, sanitation, education, recreation, information and communication technology (ICT) infrastructure, and the built environment can have a major impact on health, despite being outside of the health sector. When this decision-making is harmonized, it can improve access to health services, decrease lifestyle and environmental risk factors for poor nutrition and non-communicable diseases, reduce speed of transmission during infectious disease outbreaks, and increase availability of usable data for urban health decision-making.
Building Healthy Cities will work in partnership with Smart Cities initiatives and urban health coordination structures to add value via improved health goals and metrics in proposed infrastructure and ICT projects, enhance interoperability of data systems, and increased efficiency of multisector urban spending. In addition, Building Healthy Cities can help Smart City citizens of every demographic have a voice in the process through integration of a mobile citizen reporting system. Our goal is to reduce confusion on how to consider health within the Smart City context, reduce time and costs of producing data for decision-making, and empower citizens to demand better health-related services.
Based in Indore, the City Project Officer will be the sole project staff supporting operations in the city. S/He will coordinate with key officials in various sectors including Smart City Project authorities, municipal corporation, health, urban development, environment, transport, data systems, NGOs/CSO and other stakeholders.
