Abstract

The World Health Organization′s project “Health for All in 2000” sets levels for future health care and provision for member states. In the UK a Healthy Cities Network has been established and many towns and cities are actively considering ways of working towards attaining these levels. This involves a number of different organizations and agencies working together to build models showing all the factors and relationships which affect the health of a community. The study aims to assess the potential of cognitive mapping techniques in providing not only a consensus view, but also a better understanding of those factors and relationships.
