On 15 October 2014, the London Health Commission published Better Health for London its report to the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, on how to improve the health and wellbeing of Londoners.
The Mayor set up the London Health Commission in September 2013 to review the health of the capital, from the provision of services to what Londoners themselves can do to help make London the healthiest major global city.
Better Health for London proposes tough measures to combat the threats posed by tobacco, alcohol, obesity, lack of exercise and pollution, which harm millions of people. Together the proposals amount to the biggest public health drive in the world. It contains over 60 recommendations and sets out 10 ambitions for the city with targets.
