Abstract: 

Public urban space is a dish containing traffic, social movements, dailyroutine activities and social scenes where collaborative actions like resting, social interactions, and news inquiry and delivery happens and a public life is shaped. Citizens live most of their lives in public urban spaces. Therefore, analysis of the influence of this environment on the various aspects of their lives is of paramount importance. This study is conducted to investigate and evaluate the quality of the health of urban spaces, specifically the sidewalks, based on five main criteria of physical, social, mental, environmental and spiritual health and 22 more sub-critera, utilizing an Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) methodology in the selected axes of Zand, Molla Sadra and Jomhouri Eslami streets which are among the important and heavily-travelled roads of the city of Shiraz. Considering the criteria under study, the results revealed that: In Zand street, spiritual health with a weight of 0.779 has obtained the highest score, while physical health with a weight of 0.075, the lowest score. In Jomhouri Eslami street, physical health with a weight of 0.685 has obtained the highest score, while spiritual health with a weight of 0.103 the lowest score. In Molla Sadra street, social health with a weight of 0.66 has obtained the highest score, while environmental health with a weight of 0.115 the lowest score. Taking all the scores into account, Molla Sadra street with a score of 0.445, Jomhouri Eslami street with a score of 0.369, and Zand street with a score of 0.326 are in the first, second and third places respectively.
