The term 'Healthy Cities' came about in a title speech given at an international
meeting in Canada in 1985. It was then stressed that health is more than
just medical care - the epople's health is dependent upon the environment
that they live in and consequently the health of the community in which
they exist. The Healthy Cities movement now includes projects in over 1,000
cities around the world. Each project defines differrent goals and activities
but all bring a wide variety of people into the community improvement work.
On 14 August 1998, as part of the Kuching City Festival, an exhibition depicting
the Healthy City Kuching was declared open by the State Secretary, YB Tan
Sri Datuk Amar Haji Hamid Bugo. 23 departments and agencies took part in
the four day exhibition.

semua pihak sehinggakan kerajaan memutuskan untuk mengambil beberapa langkah
