Learning Communities Case Studies
People spend approximately 90% of their time indoors, with an estimated 69% in the home. Environmental factors, such as lead and asthma triggers, originating in the home, can result in poor health. Housing quality can impact people’s health: According to the National Healthy Housing Standard, “20 to 30% of asthma cases are linked to home environmental conditions.”
In 2014, NCHH and the American Public Health Association (APHA) collaborated on a pair of case studies tied to the National Healthy Housing Standard.
