Background: Over 70 million people are homeless in India alone. UN HABITAT estimates that India contains 63% of all of South Asia’s slum dwellers. Inadequate infrastructure, including lack of affordable housing and social welfare programmes, combine with factors such as drug or alcohol Abuse and Domestic Violence to make homelessness a pervasive condition in India. Homelessness also leads to a myriad of problem itself. Individuals who are without permanent shelter tend to have more chronic health conditions, malnutrition, and unhealthy relationships.
