Abstract

The Fixing Houses for Better Health (FHBH) Projects target the improvement of houses and household living conditions in remote and rural Indigenous communities, using a method knowing as 'housing for health'. 'Housing for health' recognises the connection between a series of healthy living practices and the quality and condition of housing.

This paper is an evaluation of the FHBH Projects 2, 3 and 4. The evaluation report contains a discussion on the context and design of the FHBH Projects, analysis and findings, a series of recommendations for future FHBH Projects and more detailed information from case study communities.
