This study considers the relationship between Regional Health Authorities (RHAs) and Municipalities in providing health services to citizens. In light of the growing trend to consider health services in holistic terms, this report focuses on the idea of urban health and wellness, an area where RHAs and municipalities overlap. The report concludes that RHAs and municipal governments should work together to positively impact the health of residents by focusing on developing city regions with strong economies, proper planning, high quality health care and social services, and strong social cohesion.
