Description

Health in All Policies (HiAP) is a strategy that strengthens the link between health and other policies, creating a supportive environment that enables people to lead healthy lives. HiAP considers the intentional or unintentional impact of non-health policies in areas such as education, housing, transportation, economic development, and others on individual and/or population health. HiAP approaches are central to the concept of achieving a "culture of health" that leads to more healthy and equitable outcomes.

In this session, the Planning Healthy Communities Initiative (PHCI) will lead an introductory training on Health in All Policies, focusing on how to bring community health and equity into planning processes and decision-making, emerging tools to build capacity for health advancement in planning, and how to support health in all policies. In addition to presentations, participants will engage in group exercises, discuss opportunities and challenges to integrating health into planning and policy processes, and learn about new statewide collaborative initiatives.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define HiAP and recognize why and when to use the HiAP approach.
  • Understand the broader context of health influences, social determinants of health, and health equity.
  • Learn how to identify and use data to measure progress in health objectives.
  • Understand how to effectively engage stakeholders in collaborative and inter-sectoral efforts to promote health.
  • Explore opportunities to incorporate Health in All Policies into government decision-making processes.
  • Gain familiarity with Health Impact Assessment (HIA) and other emerging tools that can provide evidence-based recommendations aimed at enhancing positive health impacts and minimizing negative ones.
  • Review the resources available to local government decision-makers and citizens that wish to include health consideration in community planning.
