for Healthy Families
Everyone needs a Healthy Home and some of the most serious health problems for children start in their home.
But making our homes healthy can be as easy as taking Seven Steps to a Healthy Home. There are special reasons to think about children:
Does someone in your home suffer from allergies or asthma?
Asthma and allergies are controllable by learning how to clean and what to avoid. Reduce common household triggers such as mold, carbon monoxide, pollen, dust, cleaning products, cockroaches, fragrances (air fresheners), and tobacco smoke.
Should you be concerned about Mold?
Can your children be poisoned by lead in your home?
Healthy Homes Strategic Planning Advisory Workgroup
Program goal: Reduce or eliminate housing-related hazards to promote housing that is healthy, safe, affordable, and accessible.
Focus areas: Asthma, lead, mold and radon.
The New Mexico Strategic planning advisory workgroup was established to strategically address healthy home priorities in the state. The group works to develop a plan to increase statewide capacity to holistically approach health outcomes associated with housing. This advisory workgroup aims to increase primary prevention capacity to address lead and asthma issues, as well as mold and radon concerns.
