This briefing note explains how to plan and incorporate knowledge-sharing activities while conducting a health impact assessment (HIA).
The health impact assessment process involves a variety of sectors other than the health sector and is intended to inform decision making. Organizing appropriate knowledge-sharing activities is therefore indispensable to maximizing the chances that the recommendations that result from the HIA are relevant and taken into account.
This briefing note guides the reader in developing a knowledge-sharing plan. The document is aimed specifically at persons called upon to conduct HIAs; however, it may also be of interest to persons working on other projects involving several sectors or aiming at informing decision making related to public policies.
