“Health in All Policies” is a concept that aims to strengthen the link between health and policies from other sectors such as housing, transportation, education, labor, and land use to create an environment that enables people to lead healthy lives.Health in All Policies is an approach to addressing health problems from a systematic level. By including policies and stakeholders not traditionally associated with health care delivery or public health, a broader range of solutions is possible to facilitate individual and population health. Health impact assessments (HIAs) are one of the tools used for our Health in All Policies approach.
In collaboration with community partners, including non-health entities, the Georgia Health Policy Center conducts HIAs and makes actionable policy change recommendations based on our findings.
We are also leaders in the field of HIA, technical assistance and training, providing targeted consultation and facilitation services to project teams led by a range of clients, including health departments, public health institutes, and other universities.
