Housing is a fundamental determinant of health and wellbeing. Appropriate housing – affordable, good quality, stable and secure housing – is a key precondition for promoting health and health equity, preventing illness and building healthy and inclusive communities. This paper identifies multiple links between housing and social, psychological, physical and emotional health and wellbeing. It outlines the population-wide implications of these complex linkages and demonstrates a need for integrated health and housing policy
