More than half of the world’s people live in cities, with one in three of those living in low and middle-income countries doing so in informal settlements, sometimes known colloquially as slums, with inadequate access to services and opportunities to shape decisions about their environment.

We are a research partnership funded by the UK government’s Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF). We look at health in informal settlements in India, Kenya, Bangladesh and Sierra Leone. Find out more and spread the word!
