Housing for Health projects aim to improve health by improving housing and the surrounding living environment.

The work started in 1985 in Central Australia, became a national program and then used the same principles internationally.

The core principles of the work include goals of safety and the 9 Healthy Living Practices, starting fix work on the first day of any project and using a majority of local community staff on every project.
