Excerpt
1. Introduction Scope and purpose of the Consultation Health aspects of housing and problems of housing hygiene in recent years have been the object of a large number of studies. The significance of the various health problema in this field, which already heve heen identi,fied may change in time according to change of economic, technological and social. conditions. In the more advanced countriea of the European Region, some wel.1-know health problems of former decade. have lost some of their importance (for inatance overcrowding and lack of sanitary facilities). New risks ore, however, developing and need attention. A WHO study concerned with the present situation in this field took place in 1977178, resulting in the report Environmental Health Aspects of Human Settlements (ICPIBSM 002, 1978) prepared by Dr A.E. Martin (United Kingdom) and Dr D. Oeter (Ftderal Republic of Germany). In their report, theae two WHO consultants described subjects identified for furtller study and recommended that a comparative study be org.aoized in a number of selected European towns. As a follow-up of this recornendation, the WHO Regional Office for Europe organized a Planning Consultation in Copenhagen, from 4 to 7 December 1979, in order to make the preparatory arrangements for this comparative study. Of the subjects identified for further study, the Regional Office selected indoor climate snd air quality and noise protection as priorities to be studied under the changing circumrtances, such as the impact of energy criais and the increasing need to save energy. The subjects eelected as priorities have been reviewed only recently by two working groups on Noise control in buildings (Budapest, 23-25 September 1976, ICP/CEP 702 (1977)) and on Mealth aspects related to indoor air quality (Bilthoven, 3-6 April 1979, EURO Reports and Studies, No. 21). The report of thi~ lattcr working group is already emphas;zing that the adoption of current energy-saving proposals in many countriea, whereby the ventilation rates in buildings would be lowered, could aggravate existing problems of indoor air quality and creste new health problems by increased levels of indoor air pollutants.
