Sierra Leone-Health and health systems in urban settlements of Freetown, Sierra Leone
The Sierra Leone Urban Research Centre (SLURC) is a Future Health Systems (FHS) consortium research partner exploring the conditions facing people living in informal urban settlements in Freetown. SLURC has conducted analyses to understand the range of health-related issues facing community members and have begun to prioritize which topics will be explored further in a future research agenda. In particular, SLURC wants to explore and describe how rapid population growth, especially in cities, is linked to current and emerging health problems.
