How harmful is Brussels for your health?

The maps show that some neighbourhoods suffer from a triple penalty: low incomes, poor health and a polluted environment.

The analyses confirm that the three inequalities (housing, health, environment) reinforce each other.

The experts add that it is necessary to look beyond the statistics to understand the extent of the problem in Brussels.

The «Ailing Brussels» study examines the state of health of the inhabitants of Brussels – the capital of Flanders, Belgium and Europe.
