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.
These resources have been designed to help your Local Health Department implement Health in All Policies within your community.
