This paper is going to introduce a framework for the analysis of urban health. This framework conceptualises urban health as being influenced by and simultaneously influencing the characteristics of urbanisation. Based on these considerations, the authors analyse the influences on urban health in the Indian context and illustrate the effects poor health has on the country’s development. Although the overall level of urbanisation in India is rather modest, the Indian case is particularly interesting because the urban population is growing so rapidly.
