  Improving urban newborn health: Challenges and the way forward  Popular
Description:

Agarwal Siddharth<br /> One-third of India's urban population resides in slums and squatters, their vulnerability being characterized by poverty and powerlessness. Newborn care is sub-optimal among India's urban poor, yet scarcely documented. Neonates born in urban poor settings are at high risk of death owing to multitudinous factors. This paper discusses the situation of neonatal care and survival among the urban poor across states which are at different levels of social development. Challenges in addressing needs of the newborns in urban poor settings operate at community as well as program level and need to be addressed simultaneously. The paper describes these challenges and suggests a way forward in light of the existing opportunities and lessons from successful experiences. The following emerge imperative for improving newborn care among the urban poor in India: i) development of comprehensive lead programs through close partnership among academic agencies like National Neonatology Forum, NGOs, socially committed private doctors, hospitals and city governments; ii) improving demand, promoting household practices, service outreach through trained slum-based health volunteers and women group and encouraging slum-level health funds as a community risk pooling measure; iii) enhancing competence of slum-based TBAs to improve home delivery practices and encourage hospital deliveries by linking them to affordable facilities; iv) investment in building human resource capacity at all levels for providing improved newborn healthcare; v) partnership with the private sector (private/charitable health facilities and non-government organizations) and academia for enhancing service delivery and for advocating for greater attention to the urban poor newborn; vi) making the invisible visible and reaching the unreached and more vulnerable clusters.<br /> <br /> <br />

  Spatial Mapping by GIS to assess the need of UH Policy in deficient areas of Health Infrastructure  Popular
Description:

Urban health assumes great importance due to increasing urbanisation in the country as a whole and the state of west Bengal in particular. Though agricultural prosperity in West Bengal has checked the rural to urban migration and slowed down the rate of urbanisation in recent years, yet a whopping 28% of its total population lives in urban areas. The state ranks fourth in respect of absolute size of the urban population amongst all Indian states. Average population density in urban areas of the state is highest in the country. In absence of adequate government health infrastructure in urban areas, urban health mostly depends on private facilities. Though there is abundance of private facilities in urban areas, their quality varies to a great extent. Detection of polio cases in urban areas (one in 2001, seven in 2002, five in 2003 and two in 2005) clearly indicates that there are deficiencies in urban health care services, particularly in respect of preventive and promotive health.

  Nutrition and Health Services to the Urban Poor  Popular
Description:

Urban Poor is a rapidly increasing segment of India’s population: With more than 90 million people living in urban poor settlements, the rate of urban poverty in India is staggering. An analysis of population growth trends between 1991 and 2001, show that while India grew at an average annual growth rate of 2%, urban India grew at 3%, mega cities at 4% and slum populations rose by 5 to 6%. These numbers are expected to rise and if the predictions are correct, then in the next 25 years the number of urban poor could end up in excess of 200 million
