In 1978, more than 130 countries signed the Alma Ata Declaration that aimed to protect and promote physical, mental and social well-being of all people. Thirty-six years has passed. The world has witnessed rapid changes in the development of globalization, the growth of economy, the booming of the world population and the advancement of technologies. However, some important questions remain unanswered. Have we achieved the goals the Declaration set for 2000? Have we, as planners, urban designers, architects, interior designers or other related professionals, fulfilled our mission to provide healthy living environments and quality health services to all people?
