AKERMAN, Marco et al. A concepção de um projeto de observatório de qualidade de vida: relato de uma experiência realizada em Campinas - SP. Saude soc. [online]. 1997, vol.6, n.2, pp. 83-99. ISSN 0104-1290. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-12901997000200010.
Given the assumption that the construction of a Healthy City demands a joint effort of all its inhabitants and that this is possible from a scientific basis the authors of the text present the experience of the Campinas Quality of Life Observatory Project that aims at the design of a quality of life index instrument. The phases described are the first intersectorial mobilization, conceptualization and localization of administrative and planning areas with special basis for the urbanistic project to be developed by future regional scope administrations. Second, the construction of the quality of life index itself from the 1991 demographic database and next discussions and recommendations. Such exercise has laid the bases for the consolidation of an efficient and feasible tool of continuous monitoring of an intersectorial process of quality of life betterment such as the one proposed by WHO for Healthy Cities.
