Providing Primary / Reproductive Health Services in Asian Urban Areas with Attention to Vulnerable Populations, Especially Women and Girls

Section One - The New Urban Challenge for Primary and Reproductive Health Care

4. Individual City Findings


A note on organization. In what follows we provide information on each city, moving from the most to least wealthy countries, as arranged in Table 1 in Chapter 3, Regional Findings . For each city we first give a narrative overview of the country’s position, noting important historical conditions and especially the country’s position in the demographic transition. We then provide a narrative of the city, showing its position in reproductive health and describing the data and the administrators’ views, which appear in the following two tables. Finally, we recapitulate what city administrators have done in developing AUICK Workshop Action Plans. Two tables provide information on Administrators’ Views and Statistical Data for each city. In the statistical tables we first provide population and vital statistics for the country as a whole to show its position in the demographic transition. We then provide data on reproductive health conditions, followed by family planning data. Then there are data on the health infrastructure, both facilities and personnel. Next we provide data on RH services, the proportion of births protected, and the number of vaccinations. Finally we have whatever data available on city budgets and city health budgets. Budget data are given in local currency units, then translated into $PPP per capita. The data provided in the data tables vary considerably. This is due to the different administrative systems that exist. Khon Kaen, for example, has little data because the central government dominates so much of the RH activities in the city. Chittagong, on the other hand, has more data than any other city, in part because it has recently completed an MIS, as an AUICK Workshop Action Plan, stimulated by AUICK MIS projects in other AACs.
