Celebrating our partners in 2023

3 min read

In 2023, we supported over 100 outstanding partners to find solutions to ill-health in cities. Our Executive Director, Peter Babudu, presents a roundup of their achievements.

Here’s to our partners in 2023

This July, I joined Impact on Urban Health as Executive Director.

It was such a proud moment for me. I care deeply about people’s health, about fairness, and about equal opportunities. That’s why I jumped at the chance to work with this fantastic organisation.

And since then, I’ve been blown away by how much good work is happening at Impact on Urban Health.

In fact, there’s so much that I wanted to take time at the end of the year to say thank you to all our partners.

Whereas I’ve only had time to talk about a few projects in this film, I want to say a huge thank you to all our partners. It’s only with your support that we can realise our vision of making cities healthier places for everyone.

That vision is of a world where children don’t have to go hungry while they’re at school.

…Where everyone has the same access to clean air, which doesn’t cause lifelong health issues.

…Where mental health support is accessible to all.

…And where everyone has an opportunity for a long, healthy, and happy life.

I hope you’re able to enjoy some rest over a winter break and to be proud of your fantastic achievements this year. I’m looking forward to doing even more work together in 2024.
