Health and Access to Health Services for People Living in Shelters – Topic for Social Work?


Through the results of a scope study carried out on the topics of public health, the health of shelter users and their access to health service, the authors hope to bring these issues more into the sphere of interest of social work. The authors focused their attention primarily on the physical and mental health of people in shelters; the health of women in shelters, and the health care service available to people living in shelters. Therefore, the authors want to draw attention to the need to carry out a comprehensive background analysis in the area of shelter users’ health in the Czech Republic.
