Description

Healthabitat is an Australian organisation that aims to improve population health by improving living environments. Healthabitat's philosophy is that health gains can't be achieved through medical services alone, and that healthy living environments are essential to human wellbeing.

Healthabitat strives to ensure that local Indigenous people are actively involved in all aspects of its work, and are part of making their own communities safe and healthy.
