Abstract

The increasing number of population and urbanization in the city of Jakarta has led to greater land requirements for housing and settlements. Meanwhile, the amount of available land is increasingly limited with higher prices. Construction of simple rental flats (Rusunawa), especially for low-income communities, is one of the housing provision policies by the Provincial Government of Capital Special Region of Jakarta. The development of Rusunawa is expected to improve the quality of settlements. The better quality of the housing environment is expected to improve the health of the Rusunawa residents. This research was conducted in Rusunawa Jatinegara Barat. The purpose of this study was to analyze the influence of the physical environmental conditions of Rusunawa Jatinegara Barat on health. The research approach used is a cross-sectional method. Primary data was obtained from questionnaires distributed to 225 families living in Rusunawa Jatinegara Barat. The selection of respondents was done by using proportional random sampling. The variables examined include physical environmental conditions (independent variables) and occupant health (dependent variables). Data is processed using statistical programs. The results showed that there was no improvement in the health of residents of Rusunawa Jatinegara Barat.
