HIA and the use of urban health indicators

City experience

Over the past several years, the Madrid City Government carried out a health survey (2005), and subsequent to that a study of health in the City of Madrid (2006). This was a "transversal descriptive epidemiological research study seeking to verify relations between variables related to health and other factors that are known scientifically to condition it..." (Source: Study of Health in the City of Madrid 2006. Madrid Health. Madrid City Government). The aspects addressed are the state of health, morbidity, consumption of medications, use of health care services, level of satisfaction with health care services, habits and lifestyles, preventive avtivities and scholastic performance and occupational health.

- Encouragement of coordinated and interdisciplinary work and the creation of new synergies among activities.

- Production of a strategic innovative and creative lines to provide the programs of urban regeneration with a sustainable character, in cohesion with EU policy and analyse, by means of an internal evaluation, the efficiency of the interventions.

HIA and the use of urban health indicators

Expectations:

It is hoped that – by networking and using indicators – a map of indicators can be drawn that will permit assessing the level of health in the communities, so that on the one hand, the aspects that are a threat for the community may be subsequently addressed and, on the other hand, preventive projects can be implemented. It is also hoped that this set of indicators will a level of accuracy and reliability sufficient enough for it to be able to be extrapolatable to any urban space or community.

Policies and actions for an healthy and active ageing

City experience

Starting with the premise that ageing is not exclusively linked to illness, dependency and the lack of productivity, the Madrid City Government is especially interested in providing attention to older people, carrying out actions aimed at community development, the promotion of health, the prevention of disease and the improvement in quality of life, creating a framework for action based on "active ageing". Among the activities aimed at older people currently underway we find:home assistance services, special attention during heat waves, preventive and maintenance physical therapy services, family respite programme, prevention of social isolation, municipal programme of physical exercise for older persons, day and residential centres, prevention and promotion of health, access to the new technologies for older people, defence of older people regarding consumption,encouragement of participation by older people,…

slide12

Use of Structural Funds in actions aiming at developing ‘health gains’

City experience in the field:

After reviewing the proyects that Madrid City Council has carried on, with support of European funds, we can see that the aim priority of the city has been introducing coherence in the local and European strategy, so that, each proyect answers as directly as possible to the European guidelines. Studies data from the City of Madrid, warned that weaknesses can be grouped around two main axes:

The first one is the inadequate treatment capacity of municipal waste and problems with water supply.

The second one is the imbalance in the geographical distribution of the population, standing out on one hand the regressive demography and raised ageing of the population, and on the other hand an insufficient awareness of equal opportunities.

slide13

Use of Structural Funds in actions aiming at developing ‘health gains’

Needs and challenges:

The city of Madrid is interested in developing a new project at Embajadores Neigbourhood. Among the main problems in the Embajadores neighbourhood, worthy of mention are:

-  A markedly aged population with a high level of dependency and a severe risk of social isolation. Increase in social conflictivity and a subjective feeling of insecurity.

-  Intense concentration, on the one hand, of an immigrant population and, on the other, of a native population with precarious economic resources.

-  Significant existence of sub-standard housing and overcrowding, lack of green spaces and “unhealthy" occupation of public spaces, and difficulties with the management of urban waste.

Use of Structural Funds in actions aiming at developing ‘health gains’

Expectations:

However, despite the actions carried out, the area continues to be sunk in a process of severe deterioration, which makes it necessary to study new ways of intervening that will strengthen and increase the quality of life of its residents and the visitors staying in the area. Among the challenges:

-  To develop coordinated work among the different departments of the Madrid City Government

-  The improvement of the urban landscape, redrawing spaces and recovering them for pedestrians, improving accessibility and eliminating architectural barriers

-  Renovation of infrastructures, with special attention paid to paving, lighting of public spaces, gardens, street furniture and signage, updating supply networks...

-  To gain quality private spaces, to act on the problems of sub-standard housing, to encourage work with associations

-  To promote means directed at social integration and the encouragement of peaceful co-existence.
