The papers in the series draw on unique datasets mostly aggregated at local levels to consolidate research on the urban poor and fill critical knowledge gaps on their specific living conditions, demographic and health challenges. They contribute to the critical search for pathways to reduce health inequities and improve health outcomes, including sexual and reproductive health among populations in resource-poor urban settings in Kenya and other parts of SSA
