Public Health Assessments

Health Impact Assessments

Health Impact Assessments (HIA) are data-driven examinations of proposed projects and policies that shape our communities. The HIA process outlines potential public health impacts and considerations, providing policy makers and stakeholders with a valuable tool to inform their planning decisions.

Based on the data collected in the HIA process, recommendations can be offered for practical strategies to enhance positive health outcomes – and minimize negative ones – in a broad array of policies and projects that fall outside of the traditional public health arena, including transportation, land use, housing, and economic development.
