          Abstract

          Objective: Homelessness is an increasing public health issue which has been observed on a global wide scale for decades. Within Europe, the current status accounts for a vast number of homeless individuals. Due to the nature of this growing problem, the rate of homelessness within Central and Eastern Europe requires strategizing as well as an in-depth analysis of existing literature. Several plausible causes of homelessness are highlighted such as migration, mental illness, and various other origins. This research explores national strategies and community-based interventions in efforts to reduce homelessness and improve health status in surrounding European countries. Methods and Materials: Research concerning homelessness is considered to be a secondary source research study. The information describes several factors which contribute to such prevalence in Central and Eastern Europe. Conclusion: The research displayed an upward trend concerning homelessness rates within Central and Eastern Europe. There is an opportunity to create additional community-based interventions regarding the homelessness population as well as those who face social exclusion. Decreasing the rates of homelessness will assist the health system at large in addition to increasing the employment rate.
