Health Impact Assessment: a guide for local authorities
Health impact assessment (HIA) is a way to find and improve the health consequences of any defined policy or activity.
Scottish councils play a key role in promoting health. They are responsible for a wide range of services which impact directly on public health and well-being – from social care, housing, education and community safety to environmental health, transport, and leisure and recreation. This is a stage by stage guide for local authorities and includes a planning framework.
