Abstract: The WHO European Centre for Environment and Health is addressing the question "how much human health is negatively affected by inadequate housing?" to support European policy-makers. To review and assess the first compilation draft quantifying the environmental burden of disease (EBD) for housing-health linkages, selected experts were invited to an editorial review meeting in Bonn. The meeting participants reviewed all chapters and provided advice to WHO on the EBD assessments and their evidence base. Comments will be forwarded to the authors of individual chapters. Further advice was given on the production of the general chapters (Introduction, Conclusions and Policy implications) and the main messages such a report should deliver for different audiences such as research communities, policymakers or housing professionals. The WHO secretariat was charged with a number of tasks for finalizing the current chapters in collaboration with the authors, developing new versions for general chapters, and identifying authors for chapters on important housing and health topics that are not yet covered
