Description

The National Healthy Homes Partnership translates research into an outreach program dedicated to reducing housing deficiencies and mitigating risks. The partnership assisted in developing two smartphone apps for use by professionals and consumers. The goal of the stakeholder app is to increase knowledge of healthy homes issues for outreach programs by professionals working directly with families. The goal of the consumer app is to increase awareness of unhealthy home conditions and suggest mitigation strategies for the hazards for families. Each app incorporates the eight guiding principles of healthy housing: dry, clean, maintained, safe, ventilated, pest-free, contaminant-free, and thermally-controlled.
