Return to Toolbox Main.
When pursuing a health in all policies (HiAP) agenda, several communities have used their general plans to advance health across sectors and on a wider range of policies. There are more in depth tools (such as General Plans and Zoning: A Toolkit for Building Healthy, Vibrant Communities) within this HiAP toolkit that discuss how to influence a community's general plan so that it is health oriented or has a health component. However this Change Lab Solutions tool, " A Roadmap for Healthier General Plans", is a single page snapshot and quick overview on how general plans are developed and how public health can influence their development and implementation.
