A study of environmental hygiene problems in urban low-income areas in Africa. Urban shantytowns with extreme crowding, poor housing and unsanitary environmental conditions are growing problems. The authors mean that development assistance organizations must pay attention to these problems in urban areas, where in a few decades about half of the people in most developing areas will reside.
