Abstract

OBJECTIVES:

The World Health Organization's Regional Office for Europe has undertaken a large study to evaluate housing and health in 7 European cities.

METHODS:

Survey tools were used to obtain information about housing and living conditions, health perception, and health status from a representative sample of the population in each city.

RESULTS:

In Forli, Italy, the first city studied, preliminary findings indicate some important potential links between housing and health.

CONCLUSIONS:

These findings, when combined with those from the remaining European cities, will likely generate concrete recommendations for the allocation of resources to programs that can improve housing and health.
