Case Study: New Approaches to Healthy Housing in Cleveland

Case study
May 1, 2019
The BUILD Health Challenge
In 2011, Cleveland had one of the highest rates of childhood lead poisoning in the United States, with almost one of every five children in the city receiving this diagnosis. Childhood asthma rates were also extremely high, especially for children living in poverty, according to 2008 statewide statistics for Ohio. Follow along in this new case study with the Engaging the Community in New Approaches to Healthy Housing (ECNAHH) initiative, part the BUILD Health Challenge’s first cohort, as they worked to reduce the occurrence of asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and lead poisoning related to unhealthy housing conditions in three sub-neighborhoods in Cleveland.
