The importance of housing as a determinant of health has been widely recognised. However, it’s not always clear what action could and should be taken locally to address poor health associated with household circumstances.
In this project, we aim to improve our understanding of which determinants of health at household level are tractable to local intervention. We will discuss with local experts what levers they might use to address health inequalities linked to housing problems. Using this knowledge, we will then work with local government to identify what data are available within, and to, local authorities that is relevant to housing and inequalities.
