Health in All Policies
Health in All Policies (HiAP) is an intersectoral approach to systematically addressing the social determinants of health at all levels of government. It is promoted, notably, by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Global Network for Health in All Policies, of which the NCCHPP is an active member and the acting Secretariat. HiAP aims to help decision makers in all sectors and at all levels of decision making integrate considerations of health, equity and wellbeing into their policies. HiAP is based on the establishment of formal governance structures, adherence to common goals, and the search for win-win situations for the different sectors involved, which distinguishes it from other intersectoral approaches to integrating health and wellbeing considerations into policy development.
This section provides resources, including publications, webinars, and videos, aimed at providing a knowledge base focused on HiAP and other approaches to integrated governance (intersectoral governance, horizontal governance, etc.). It also presents examples of tools that facilitate its implementation and courses of action for supporting its practice in Canada.
