Health in All Policies (HiAP): Frequently Asked Questions


NACCHO developed the "Health in All Policies (HiAP): Frequently Asked Questions" to inform local health departments and jurisdictions about HiAP. The FAQs defines what HiAP is, how it is different from other health policies, gives a brief history of HiAP, how health equity and environmental health play in HiAP, and defines terms related to HiAP.

Local jurisdictions can use the FAQ to share with their partners and staff to inform them about HiAP. It can also help local jurisdictions as they try to anticipate the kinds of questions they can expect to receive about HiAP.
