Effects of Housing First Approaches on Health and Well-Being of Adults Who are Homeless or at Risk of Homelessness

Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Randomised Controlled Trials

Homelessness is associated with poor health.

We aimed to systematically review the evidence from randomised controlled trials for the effects of HF on health and well-being.
