Health in All Policies provides a way for policymakers--at all levels and across all agencies--to systematically consider health in their policy development efforts. With local government facing tremendous budget constraints, HiAP offers a cost-effective approach that focuses on improving existing programs, policies and projects (rather than creating new programs that require additional funding). View this webinar to learn how adopting a Health in All Policies approach can result in enhanced collaboration between agencies and increase prioritization of active transportation.
California's unique statewide, multi-agency Health in All Policies Task Force is in the vanguard of this new planning approach. Speakers describe how the task force has promoted a coordinated approach to statewide active transportation initiatives, explain how to replicate the HiAP approach in any community, and review a toolkit of model policies to establish Health in All Policies at the local level. The session also identifies and explores different tools for quantifying the health benefits of bicycle and pedestrian projects.
• Define Health in All Policies
• Describe model policies and tools to implement the HiAP approach to active transportation
