Affordable housing of good quality, with good energy efficiency and adequate ventilation, has the potential to be an important contributor to improved health and wellbeing.[1]

Adverse house/built environment, including poor housing quality and non-functioning, lack of green spaces, noise and air pollution are related to depressive mood and should be taken into account during planning in order to prevent depressive mood.[2]

Findings provide strong evidence that people’s perceived physical health depends, among other things, on their housing conditions, as well as the quality of the infrastructure and the environmental pollution they experience in their immediate surroundings.

A suboptimal living environment has short- and long-term negative effects on physical health. Because even short-term changes in the living environment have an immediate influence on an individual’s health status and health trajectories, public attention to living environment is essential to fight existing health inequalities.[3]
