Health Impact Assessment (HIA) can be used to evaluate a proposed plan or project’s potential effects on the health of a population. HIA provides evidence-based recommendations aimed at enhancing positive health impacts and minimizing negative ones, providing an approach to the decision-making process by:

  • Considering health outcomes such as social, economic and environmental influences;
  • Convening diverse members of the public to elicit multiple perspectives and input;
  • Identifying groups of people who might be particularly vulnerable to health impacts; and
  • Reviewing potential strategies that may reduce negative health impacts and increase positive impacts.
