dc.description.abstractBangladesh is one of the most densely populated countries in the world. This country is experiencing rapid urban population growth in recent decades. Uneven development, natural hazards and lack of employment opportunities are the key factors of urban population growth (Rana, 2011). While the many benefits of organized and efficient cities are well understood, we need to recognize that this rapid, often unplanned urbanization brings risks of profound social instability, risks to critical infrastructure, potential water crises and the potential for devastating spread of disease. (World Economic Forum, 2015). Annual urban growth rate in Bangladesh is 3.15% (BBS, 2003). Slum-non slum disparity is increasing day by day and most urban growth occurring in slum settlements, where health risks are greatest (United Nations, 2014). In addition, the absence of well designed policies for health system strengthening and the lack of coordination between central and local government amplifies the differences in health care provision (Ahmed et al., 2015).en_US
