It is often observed that homeless people appear disproportionately affected by health problems compared with the general population. This situation must be addressed, but we should avoid pathologising or psychologising homelessness. Neither should we typify homeless experiences. The relationship between health and homelessness is multifaceted. Addressing these issues therefore concerns many interrelated questions. These can include questions relating to cause and effect, services, training and data collection, amongst others.
