Abstract

The public health field is trying to address wide racial disparities in health. Sharp racial disparities also exist in housing at multiple levels, including access to safe homes and neighborhoods, and to opportunity in metropolitan areas. Given the effects of housing, neighborhood quality, and segregation on health, the field is embarking upon a more systematic understanding of the ways in which addressing housing disparities at multiple levels may contribute to correcting health disparities. The links seem clear. Can we make them actionable?
