"no survey without service" ~ Dr. Fred Hollows
Why did only 35% of houses nationally used by Indigenous people have a shower that functioned when tested? Is the Housing for Health test too tough? Now you have a chance to test and assess the function of your own shower. See how your shower compares with the showers tested in over 7,800 houses around Australia. Take the challenge here.
Working showers are also on Amnesty International Australia's agenda at the moment FIND OUT WHY?
If Nepal is one of the poorer countries in the world and Australia supposedly now one of the wealthiest (on a per capita basis)... what connects the two countries? What are the links between building a humble toilet in Nepal and upgrading or building a new house for an Indigenous family in Australia? Did the World Habitat Award Study Tour, held in Nepal (late 2012) to look at the current sanitation project, reveal ways to build poverty? Find out by reading this short paper.
