They present the most recent research priorities and discuss the management and financing of urban health services; the roles of international agencies such as WHO, the World Bank, UNICEF, and of grassroots NGOs; trends in urban health policy; and progress and prospects for future improvements at conceptual and strategic levels. In addition, a range of case studies and examples look at major initiatives in cities as diverse as Santiago, Dar es Salaam, Kampala, Dhaka and Bombay.
