Slums and Their Health Implications
This paper answers the following questions:
“Of the 3 billion people who live in urban settings, about 1 billion live in slums. In Kenya, for example, 71% of the urban population lives in slums; in Ethiopia 99%. It takes only 10-20 years for the urban population to double in many African countries.”
What are the health implications of this?
How does the USA deal with poverty?
What can other 3rd world countries do to minimize people living in slums and its health implications?
