Aims: The Healthy City approach examines the quality of life of individuals within a society by considering various factors such as the environment, community health, individual and social living conditions, and social welfare. In this descriptive-analytical study, the environmental situation of Tehran was assessed and compared in order to identify the indicators of a healthy city.
Methodology: For this study, the statistical population consisted of Asian cities and 22 districts within Tehran. The data on each indicator was collected separately from various library sources and organizational references. Initially, the proximity of Tehran to the indicators of a healthy city was determined and prioritized by employing the fuzzy network analysis model and the Vicor ranking model. This allowed for a comparison of Tehran's position with that of other selected Asian cities. Then, by referring to the specific weights of the indicators and Vicor model, the ranking of each of the 22 districts of Tehran was done, in order to determine the importance of each of them in the current situation of Tehran.
Findings: The obtained results indicate that Tehran ranks sixth among the selected Asian cities, but it has a lower rank in all the examined criteria than the average values obtained. Among the regions of Tehran, this survey also showed that regions 22, 18 and 6 are in the best condition and regions 9, 10 and 12 are in the worst condition.
Conclusion: These results show that Tehran has taken steps towards achieving the indicators of a healthy city, but due to various reasons, it has not been able to achieve these indicators in 22 regions with tasteful management. The proposed strategy is an adaptive approach and improving governance capacity.
