Health Impact Assessment

The Centers for Disease Control Health Impact Assessment (HIA) is a tool that can help communities, decision makers, and practitioners make choices that improve public health through community design. HIA is a process that helps evaluate the potential health effects of a plan, project, or policy before it is built or implemented. HIA brings potential positive and negative public health impacts and considerations to the decision-making process for plans, projects, and policies that fall outside traditional public health arenas, such as transportation and land use. An HIA provides practical recommendations to increase positive health effects and minimize negative health effects. HIA toolkits are available for transportation projects as well as parks and trails.
