FOCUS:

Health in Urban Poor Communities of the Global South

DEFINITIONS: (Yonette Thomas, PhD)

  • Global South: Countries classified by the World Bank as low- or middle-income located in Africa, Asia, Oceania, Latin America, and the Caribbean.

  • Global Health: research and practice that places a priority on improving health and achieving equity in health for all people worldwide. It emphasizes transnational health issues, determinants, and solutions; involves many disciplines within and beyond the health sciences; and is a synthesis of population-based prevention with individual-level clinical care.

  • Public Health: the science, practice, and art of collective efforts to prevent disease, promote health, and prolong quality of life among populations, while assuring conditions in which all people can be healthy.

  • Urban Health:  Urban health reflects the outcomes of the physical and the social environment that impact residents’ and communities’ well-being and quality of life, within an urban setting. The physical and built environment (urban structures, infrastructure, and spaces) may affect health, especially if there are issues with water quality, sewage, or air pollution.

Themes:

  1. COVID-19 and other diseases in urban environments

  2. Community health action and awareness

  3. The urban environment: physical and built environment – urban structures, infrastructure, slum dwelling; waste management; air pollution

  4. Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene – safe drinking water; toilets; drainage & irrigation
