In this briefing paper, poverty is seen in a broad context encompassing aspects of social inclusion, equality, compliance with human rights and quality of life. Poverty, therefore, is not just about income but about education, well-being, employment, good housing and a safe and healthy environment.

The Institute of Public Health in Ireland (IPH) was commissioned by the Department of Health, Social Services and Public Safety (DHSSPS) to evaluate Healthy Living Centres (HLCs) in Northern Ireland, to assist them in assessing the value of the work done by the HLCs and to make decisions about the support which might be offered to them in future in the light of competing priorities. The evaluation was carried out during 2006 by Siobhan Livingstone, Jorun Rugkåsa and Leslie Boydell.

This review is the third in the series and illustrates how the built environment impacts on health. It also highlights the unequal distribution of these impacts on different sections of the population.  We hope it will help inform debate about the links between the built environment and health and be a useful resource for those working to influence public policy for health at a local and national level across the island. The review has an extensive reference list.
