Housing for Health Roundtable London 2012



Healthabitat, the Australian organisation that developed the influential Housing for Health methodology and tools which have been used with great impact in Indigenous communities, will participate in a housing roundtable in London in August. The roundtable will consider the principles and methods used in the Housing for Health program.

It is hoped that the event will link work being done in the UK and Australia and principles and methods shared and discussed with practitioners in the health, housing and environmental health areas.

The Housing for Health program originated in 1985 in Australia and since 1999 alone has improved over 7,500 houses for over 45,000 Indigenous Australians in urban, suburban, rural and remote locations. The same principles have now been used in the USA and Nepal.

The round table session will involve the participants in exercises and discussions to answer the following questions:
