Building healthy cities. Together.

Through the generous support of individuals, foundations, corporations, and government agencies, the Academy has uniquely been at the forefront of addressing health challenges in urban environments.  

Half the world’s population now lives in cities, and urbanization is increasing in all regions of the world. Investing in the work of the Academy’s Institute for Urban Health to find solutions to ensure good health and address health disparities in complex, dense and diverse urban environments couldn’t be more timely.

Your donation will also support the critical work of our Library to preserve and promote the history of medicine, its public programming in history, humanities, and the arts, and the important work of our 2,000 Fellows working across the medical specialties, health professions, and other disciplines affecting health.
