Community Health Initiatives: Healthy Cleveland

Healthy Cleveland (also known as the Healthy Cleveland Initiative) is a partnership of individuals, nonprofits, and businesses seeking the common goal of a healthier Cleveland. Its origins go back to February 2011, when the Mayor of the City of Cleveland joined with the community and public health organizations and the four large healthcare systems in the city (Cleveland Clinic, University Hospitals, MetroHealth, and St. Vincent Charity) to introduce and pass Cleveland City Council Resolution No. 257-11, or the “Healthy Cleveland Initiative.” This bold, far-reaching set of health policy changes ranges from the expansion of community gardens; banning of smoking on and in all city properties, including parks and playgrounds; removing sugar-based drinks and trans-fat foods from vending machines throughout the city; creating a task force to develop healthy food options within the Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD); and promoting mobility (i.e., pedestrian and bike access) and physical activity in neighborhoods.
