Ecology and Health
He Kainga Oranga Housing and Health Research Programme
This Programme studies the relationship between housing, health, well-being, energy efficiency and climate change. It does this through community trials, cohorts and qualitative studies. Areas of focus include: temperature, dampness, crowding, injury-hazards, tenure, dwelling-condition, neighbourhood and other links in the causal chain between poor housing and ill health.
See the He Kainga Oranga Housing and Health Research Programme website or contact Philippa Howden-Chapman at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
Neighbourhoods and Health
This project analyses the association of neighbourhood properties (e.g. social fragmentation, access to community resources, walk ability) with a range of health outcomes (e.g. mental health, physical activity, mortality). Linked census-mortality data, survey data and in-depth qualitative data are all used. This project is part of the Health Inequalities Research Programme (HIRP).
