Abstract: The aim of the review was to look into the possibilities given by regulations to improve or protect health through improving housing conditions in seven European countries (Germany, Italy, Lithuania, Portugal, Hungary, the Netherlands and United Kingdom). Two questionnaires have been developed by WHO/EURO for gathering the information on a) the main principles of the regulation regarding housing and health as well as the actors involved in the design and b) on specific housing threats. Based on the results gathered through these questionnaires, this report identifies where the regulatory framework could be improved or is lacking and formulates policy options that could help the European Ministries responsible for health and for housing to design their future regulation and/or action plans in the field of housing
