The World Bank, in partnership with Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI),
has launched India Health Beat -- short, evidence based policy note series
primarily targeted at Indian policy makers at various levels. The recently
published (December 2010) set of policy briefs, which is the fourth round, is
based on the theme of urban health in India. Within this overarching theme, the
series contains notes on variety of topics ranging from institutional
arrangements for service delivery to population-based public health challenges
in urban settings, from mapping of broad urban trends with respect to
demography, poverty, and disease epidemiology to specific success stories of
transformation of public health services in cities. The current collection is
quite relevant to the current policy context and is expected to contribute to
the ongoing discussion on the national urban health mission.
