Abstract

In a short term qualitative study exploring the impact that improvements to housing might have upon the health of household members, respondents perceived significant benefits of housing improvements for physical and mental health, and for both children and adults. There is a need for prospective research which monitors health and wellbeing before, during, and after housing improvement and which uses independent measures of health.
