With this study we show that homeless people belong to an extremely vulnerable group
with an variety of serious diseases in a shorter life and that they do not die from homelessness but from preventable and/or treatable causes and health problems.

In terms of accessibility of care, a constant fight against deterioration was needed -homeless people have lost their health care insurance since 2015 if they have no longer their address-and we have presented recommendations for future research and improvement and policies to prevent homelessness.
