The conclusion offers suggestions for incorporating the research conclusions into policy and future study. The book’s findings on community relationships suggest that women’s cooperatives, a development practice for empowerment, and problem solving in low-income international communities must account for the potential for abuse within these relationships. Community-based participatory methods, frequently utilized in public health and celebrated in anthropology, should be adapted for populations that, despite shared poverty and health risks, are highly fragmented. Healthcare policy could build on the health-seeking strategies commonly employed by women in slums. Finally, several methodological recommendations and future research directions are offered.
