The housing situation and the increase in the number of homeless people is a worrying reality around the world. The World Health Organization is warning about the impact of housing policies on the health of the people. In the same way, the 2018 report of the FEANTSA (European Federation of National Organisations Working with the Homeless) described an increase in the number of homeless people in the European Union, with a possible direct impact on the health of this population under exclusion.
Unfortunately, more information is necessary to understand the impact of housing situations in the health of the populations. The Special Issue "Health, housing and homelessness" invites authors from disciplines such as social policies, psychology, public health, medicine, economics, psychology, demography, and sociology to submit their original and review articles related to analysing the impact on health of homelessness situation and housing policies. Papers from European Union and all other countries are welcome.
Through “Cost Action, CA15218 - Measuring homelessness in Europe” the co-editors of this Special Edition, are well connected to academic researchers, steak holders (housing, policies makers and social care services) and NGOs, as well as other experts.
Potential areas of interest include but not limited to the following:
- Homelessness health
- Mental health and housing situation
- Addictions and health in homelessness
- Housing and health
- Social policies and health in social exclusion
- National studies
- Prevention policies or interventions
