The health impacts of inner-city gentrification, displacement and housing insecurity: 

a quasi-experimental 

multi-cohort study.

HUG is an innovative and multidisciplinary project that integrates knowledge from geography, sociology, epidemiology, urban planning and environmental sciences to investigate the health effects of gentrification, displacement and housing insecurity using for that geospatial data from two population-based cohorts from Porto Metropolitan Area covering different lifestages. 

Funded by the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology (PTDC/GES-OUT/1662/2020), we hope to generate evidence on the health consequences of the neighbourhood social changes caused by the housing crisis to inform the design and planning of healthier neighbourhoods and housing conditions.
