A Special Issue on Health Impact Assessment, in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, is being organized.
Health Impact Assessment (HIA) has been proposed by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a key tool for health in all policies. In the last few decades, the practice of using Health Impact Assessments to influence public policies has been gaining in popularity throughout the world.
The WHO defines Health Impact Assessment as a combination of procedures, methods, and tools by which a policy, program, or project may be judged as to its potential effects on the health of a population, and the distribution of those effects within the population. Health Impact Assessment uses qualitative and/or quantitative methods (such as expert consultations, focus groups, comparative risk assessment, and burden of disease), and can be applied to multiple sectors (such as employment, social equity, environment, housing, and transportation).
For this Special Issue, we seek high-quality contributions on all types of Health Impact Assessments. We welcome contributions from all around the world on HIA applied to any sector, population, or geographical area. We also seek HIA reviews, methodological papers, evaluations, best practices, and critical analysis. We invite contributors from academia and the impact assessment practice, policy, and education arenas.
