According to the CDC, Health in All Policies (HiAP) is a collaborative approach that integrates and articulates health considerations into policymaking across sectors to improve the health of all communities and people. HiAP recognizes that health is created by a multitude of factors beyond healthcare and, in many cases, beyond the scope of traditional public health activities. This presentation aims to describe the HiAP idea and give examples of ways in which local governments in Illinois could consider a HiAP approach when making decisions that impact the residents of their communities.
