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.
On June 18, the Bloustein School’s 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.
