The objective of this book is to provide an overview of the subject of housing and health. It will be an invaluable aid to help solve basic health-related housing problems, and to meet WHO's objective of healthy housing for all by the year 2000. The principles of healthy housing have universal applicability as most countries of the developed world have areas of slum, or otherwise insanitary housing. The book is divided into three sections. Section 1 deals with some general considerations applicable to basic housing hygiene. Section 2 outlines the fundamental technical and social requirements for maintaining housing hygiene including the health implications, suggested control measures and examples of standards. These requirements are categorized within a series of broad parameters setting out the minimum human requirements for housing in relation to health needs, the section should be of particular interest to architects, hygienists and technical personnel. Section 3 summarizes some of the operational and organizational priorities and constraints for achieving basic health requirements for new housing and human settlements. It can also be used as a guide for assessing the hygienic quality of existing housing. The book would sit well alongside inter-professional and community education programmes.
