Title

HEALTH PROBLEMS OF WOMEN LIVING IN SLUMS OF CHIDAMBARAM TOWN

Authors

Abstract

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), over 600 million urbanites live in low quality shelters or other areas plagued by overcrowding and inadequate provision of sanitation services, including potable water and safe waste disposal. In many instances, the urban poor live illegally in areas “deemed unfit for habitation,” making the residents “officially invisible”. Urbanization in India is characterized by high rate of population growth in the urban centers and inability of civic bodies to provide basic services, including education and health. The respondents reported that generally they suffer from Intestinal infections such as Diarrhea, Dysentery, and Intestinal parasite. Other diseases mentioned are Headache, Fever, Cough and cold, Gastric/ Ulcer, Blood Pressure Jaundice, Diabetes, Anemia, Skin Disease, Toothache. In case of some severe diseases like tuberculosis, anemia, the slum women don’t even know the cause and their proper treatment. Open sewers are just one of the unsanitary aspects of slum conditions, and these cause serious problems by contaminating water.

Key Words

urbanites, plagued, sanitation, potable water, unfit for habitation, respondents, Intestinal infections, Intestinal parasite.
