In India, the 'urban bias' in public spending on healthcare services has been pointed out by a number of studies. Even within urban areas, especially in the big cities, the slum population is particularly underprivileged. This study examines the patterns of morbidity and healthcare utilisation by the urban poor living in slums and resettlement colonies in Delhi and Chennai, and compares the health status of the two segments.
