INTERVIEW: Urban under-nutrition and slums : a hidden issue
Interview Claudio Torres, UN-Habitat, Participatory Slum Upgrading Unit, Nairobi, Kenya.

According to WHO; life expectancy is 10 or 15 years less in the slums compared to that of wealthier inhabitants from the same city. This chronic situation must be addressed.
