La Cité de la santé, une expérience d'empowerment

Abstract : The Cité de la santé (City of Health), an information and resource centre based in Paris's largest science museum, the Cité des sciences et de l'industrie, provides the general public - whether they be users, carers, professionals or simple passersby - with access to a wide variety of interactive information sources allowing individuals to empower themselves to become actors of both their own personal health and the health of their community. Situated at the heart of a cultural mediation space including representatives of user, carer and professional organisations, the Cité de la santé has become a veritable reference point in France for developing and valorising healthcare service user expertise through exhibitions, events and workshops in a wide variety of health areas.
