Organization Description:
ARCHIVE works at the intersection of health and housing. We use one basic need – housing – to deliver one basic right – health.

ARCHIVE has an active interest in Tuberculosis increased transmission is one of the worrying implications of inadequate housing/living conditions. An individual’s chances of developing active TB are exacerbated by poor living conditions (overcrowding and poor ventilation, for example), poor environmental factors, ill-health and poor mental and physical well-being.

Our mission is two-fold:
Preventative
We renovate inadequate housing for those who are economically disadvantaged, using simple measures to reduce their vulnerability to poor health.

Treatment-based
For those already suffering from poor health, we create home-based care facilities in order to make housing central to the deliverance of suitable care.

ARCHIVE’s model relies on hearing and understanding the needs of community and resident, on the ability to identify the most urgent health challenges and on the delivery of a targeted infrastructure response that best suits the recipient’s needs.

ARCHIVE is currently conducting the project Kay e Santé nan Ayiti (Creole for Housing and Health in Haiti). In the form of an open housing design competition the project sought to solicit ideas on housing prototypes that work to reduce the transmission of tuberculosis for a community in St. Marc, Haiti. The 5 winning designs were announced on January 12th 2011 and we are moving into the next phase of the project where the designs will be used to build 5 single-family units.

Furthermore, we are involved in a project based in the London Borough of Brent, North West London. Brent currently has Tuberculosis incidence rate of more than 114 per 100 000 of the population. 89% of these cases are among BAME groups who often live in overcrowded conditions. The project aims to increase awareness about actions that can be done around the house to minimise the risk og TB Transmission. It also aims to empower BAME groups about TB sy
