NSW Health has been managing a health and safety focussed repair and maintenance program in Aboriginal community housing across NSW the past 10 years.

The program has consistently identified improvements in house function for each project, increasing the ability of the householders to practice healthy living.

A detailed study using geo-coded hospital separations data was undertaken to identify if there have been any health benefits for the residents of the houses that have received the program.

The results exceeded expectations with regard to health benefits. ​
