Healthy Living

Healthy living depends very much on a clean and hygienic living environment as well as good habits in personal hygiene. This is especially important in densely populated places such as public housing estates.

To this end, we have been promoting responsible behaviours among public housing residents. The most notable example is our Marking Scheme that gives penalty points to tenants who cause health hazard or hygienic nuisance to the neighbourhood. We also organise regular cleaning campaigns such as Operations Tai Ping Tei in the estates.

Publicity campaigns are also organised from time to time to remind our tenants to prevent the breeding of mosquitoes and safeguard themselves against epidemic diseases.
