Health Impact Assessment (HIA)

The determinants of health


Evidence of health impacts focus on:

  • Improvements in housing and improved mental health and general health
  • The possibility of improved housing leading to rent rises, impacting negatively on health.
  • Movement of original tenants after housing improvement and therefore not benefiting from the improvements.
  • Housing tenure, outdoor temperature, indoor air quality, dampness, housing design, rent subsidies, relocation, allergens and dust mites, home accident prevention, and fire prevention.
  • Homelessness.
