Health in All Policies
The Health in All Policies Task Force is a collaborative project between the Public Health Institute, the California Department of Public Health, and the California Strategic Growth Council. Health in All Policies is a collaborative approach to improving population health by incorporating health considerations into decision-making across sectors and policy areas. HiAP is an innovative response to increasingly siloed government structures, rising healthcare costs, growing inequities, and growing awareness of the impact of the social determinants of health.
Designing Safe California Environments for Health
This project combines land use and violence prevention strategies in a practical, usable guidance document that will help local governments and community leaders improve community safety. It supports The California Endowment's Health Happens in Neighborhoods campaign.
Health in All Policies Guide
PHI is creating a Health in All Policies (HiAP) Guide in response to growing interest in infusing health considerations into government decision-making across a broad spectrum of policy areas. While the Guide draws heavily on the experiences of the California HiAP Task Force, it describes a variety of approaches and structures and shares case examples from local, state, national and international efforts.
Health in all Policies Task Force's Food Procurement project
The goal of this project is to lay the groundwork to advance California state government procurement policies that increase access to healthy and location-efficient food. Efforts will result in collaboration with Health in All Policies Task Force members to identify an agency or several agencies to begin implementing a healthy and location-efficient food procurement policy.
Support of the Health in All Policies Task Force
With this intervention, the Health in All Policies (HiAP) Task Force staff will facilitate the task force's interagency process, maintain stakeholder engagement, and further expand technical assistance and local support through development and dissemination of a HiAP toolkit. Additional technical assistance will include webinars on the HiAP approach, which will be especially targeted at The California Endowment's Building Healthy Communities sites.
