In this workshop, participants will learn about the multiple health challenges facing urban informal settlements in East Africa and how participatory upgrading can address co-benefits for health including improved living conditions, environments, social and economic opportunities and health care services. Participants will hear from residents and NGO-representatives working to improve well-being in informal settlements. The majority of the workshop will be an interactive exercise, called a role-play, where participants will negotiate as part of a team how to improve health in an informal settlement. Through this exercise, participants will learn about the challenges and opportunities for improving urban health through a focus on informal settlements and through engagement with slum dwellers. Short readings and workshop materials will be distribute to enrolled participants via email before the date of the conference.
