There’s a useful new resource from The Society of Practitioners of Health Impact Assessment about discussing health equity in HIAs:

The SOPHIA Equity Working Group

Communicating about Equity in HIA: A Guide for Practitioners.

HIAs provide an opportunity to advance equity. Practitioners often struggle with how to effectively communicate about equity in HIA, and strategically communicate about this core value of HIA. An effective approach to communication is fundamental to ensuring that HIAs can impact policies and support change.

This guide intends to aid HIA practitioners in their efforts to communicate about equity as an essential step towards advancing equity.
