Health in All Policies (HiAP) is a concept that explores the health impacts of all policies, especially policies that address the environment. HiAP looks beyond health policies into measures that indirectly affect the public’s health. Issues such as transportation infrastructure, community design, food and farm policy, and chemical control all contribute to this nation’s health. HiAP recognizes these contributions and identifies approaches to leverage these efforts to improve the nation’s health.
