Health and the Built Environment Sources of Information
Ladies in park

This review is the third in the series and illustrates how the built environment impacts on health. It also highlights the unequal distribution of these impacts on different sections of the population. We hope it will help inform debate about the links between the built environment and health and be a useful resource for those working to influence public policy for health at a local and national level across the island. 

The review has an extensive reference list. To supplement the health impacts of the built environment review a ‘sources of information’ list has been developed which highlights a number of organisations whose work considers issues relevant to the relationship between health and the built environment.
