This manual is designed for all those working with the urban poor, in particular front-line health and development workers.

Programme managers, policy makers, students, course organizers and donors should also find this book opens their eyes to practical problems and how they can be solved. Topics include gathering resources, training a team, working in partnership, training community health volunteers, with chapters on women's and children's health, vulnerable households, HIV and TB. There are detailed chapters on the urban environment, including housing, water supply, excreta disposal, surface water and environmental hazards. The final part covers management, and ways of making programmes sustainable.
