Covers a wide range of environmental, ecological, health and epidemiological issues. . Case studies and examples show how health policy and procedure is practically applied to sustainable urban development. 'Urban Design: Health and the Therapeutic Environment' outlines best practice for healthy, sustainable urban design and provides a reference tool for architects, urban designers, landscape architects, health professionals and planners.
