Good housing is good health We all want a good, affordable home in a strong neighborhood “Children in families that have been behind on rent within the last year are more likely to be in poor health and have an increased risk of developmental delays than children whose families are stably housed. Housing has a major impact on health. To help reconnect the housing and public health fields, the National Center for Healthy Housing and APHA released the new National Healthy Housing Standard. This health-focused property maintenance policy targets the nation’s million existing homes.

For example, in the field of thermal comfort there has seen a development from narrow and precise physiological comfort theory, based on the seminal work of Fan to a more holistic understanding that has led to the adoption of adaptive comfort theory Similarly, health research has extended from the treatment of symptoms to incorporate. Housing affects health in multiple ways: • Housing quality can impact physiological health (e.g., lead, radon, mold, extreme temperatures), psychological health (e.g., noise, inadequate light), and safety (e.g., falls, fires). • Unaffordable housing costs affect health by reducing the income that a household has available for nutritious.

Decent, affordable housing should be a basic right for everybody in this country.

Livestock housing is a major determinant of animal health, welfare and productivity. This book presents the important principles and processes by which housing influences these outcomes, and shows how an understanding of these can be translated into specifications for housing designs.
