The Intersection of Housing Policy and Health:
Policy Options to Improve Health for Vulnerable Populations

Research shows that for various vulnerable populations, stable and affordable housing that is linked to health services improves health outcomes. The recent focus on linking people with chronic patterns of homelessness with coordinated services through supportive housing has highlighted the importance of better coordination and integration across the health and housing sectors for people with complex health needs.
