Health literacy: another way of measuring housing quality


Today, whether condominiums or social housing, Parisian buildings are facing a series of renovation processes that allow us to deepen the quality of their construction. This renewal affects the social life of the buildings, which has been consolidated over the years. While a building is built by materials and populations, it is also the result of history, from its construction to its daily maintenance (or degradation). Our assumption is that people who have no control over their living space are likely to suffer more health problems, in most cases without knowing exactly why, due to a lack of knowledge about the causes or health literacy in their living space. The inability to adapt to their homes or to resolve these situations independently makes us wonder: How can residents' health be influenced by their ability to control their living space? To demonstrate this, we will explain the methodology we are using to understand how people feel affected by the tension between factors that generate satisfaction or dissatisfaction and that have different effects on physical and mental health.
