Big Idea: ARCHIVE (Architecture for Health in Vulnerable Environments) is an international 501(c)(3) charity that brings awareness to the relationship between poor housing and poor health.
Why It’s Working: By designing and implementing housing improvements, ARCHIVE can bring down rates of tuberculoisis, HIV and AIDS. A healthier community means a healthier economy.
"Health and housing are inextricably linked,” says Peter Williams, founder of ARCHIVE. “We know — and we’ve known for quite some time — that the environment is directly proportional to the health risk that these communities face.”
Environmental factors, like a lack of ventilation and overcrowding, can increase the risk for and exacerbate the symptoms of diseases like tuberculosis, HIV and AIDS.
