This capstone was created to examine the association of environmental factors and measure of health including mental health in residents of four communities in Salvador, Brazil. Researchers collected data from self-reporting a standard form questionnaire to gain the perception of 1,128 Salvador residents on their living conditions and their daily mental and social well-being. Results indicate differences in physical and mental health across neighborhoods but not a significant association with access to environmental measures linked to water and sanitation via flooding and sewer problems. In addition to analysis, literature was reviewed and a proposed activity for further research is proposed.
