Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

There is a demonstrable connection between public health and the built environment and as a result of this connection, the government has and continues to intervene in the built environment. This article argues that such intervention is appropriate and supported by theory as well as historical practice and empirical evidence.
