Health in All Policies
Health in all Policies (HiAP) is a change in the systems that determine how decisions are made and implemented by local, state, and federal government to ensure that policy decisions have neutral or beneficial impacts on the determinants of health. HiAP emphasizes the need to collaborate across sectors to achieve common health goals, and is an innovative approach to the processes through which policies are created and implemented.
NACCHO's Environmental Health in All Policies (EHiAP) Project aims to increase awareness among decision makers and other stakeholders about the environmental public health implications of policies and to build the capacity of local health departments to be involved in cross-sector work with the goal of improving the health of the community.
NOTICE: Due to an overwhelming number of applications, the Health in All Policies (HiAP) Technical Assistance Program is now closed, and no new applications will be accepted.
NACCHO plans to re-open the HiAP Technical Assistance Program in fall 2018.
These resources have been designed to help your Local Health Department implement Health in All Policies within your community.
