[Comment] Healthy cities in China: a Lancet Commission

The year 2016 marks the 30th anniversary of the concept of healthy cities, which has been promoted by WHO since 1986.1 The movement started in Europe as a way to put health high on the political, social, and economic agendas of cities. It represents a mindset shift from a health-care system centred on disease treatment to one that combines treatment, prevention, promotion of health policy, and a transferral of responsibility from health professionals to the entire society, with an emphasis on the role of local governments.
