Over their basic purpose of providing shelter against the elements and a focus for family life, human dwellings should afford protection against the hazards to health arising from the physical and social environments. At its best, appropriate housing promotes physical and mental health. It provides people with psychological security, physical ties with their community and culture, and a means of expressing their individuality. This publication outlines the health needs to be met in human dwellings and the steps that governments, communities and families might take to meet them, with particular attention to developing countries.
