New US Guidance on Health Impact Assessment

The US National Research Council has released a guidance report on HIA. It “calls for increased education and training, more emphasis on stakeholder involvement and reducing health disparities, and collaboration at all levels of government to support the incorporation of health considerations into decision-making”.

The project to develop the guidance was funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, the California Endowment, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Well worth a look.
