Health In All Policies


“Health in All Policies” is an approach that promotes integrating health considerations into decision-making for all sectors and policy areas, beyond just the traditional healthcare sector. It acknowledges that health outcomes are influenced by many factors—including social, economic, environmental, and behavioral factors—and that a wide range of policies and decisions can impact population health and well-being, for better or for worse. The HiAP approach emphasizes the need for collaboration across sectors to improve community health outcomes.
