Archives of Public Health is calling for submissions to our Collection on Health Impact Assessment.
Health Impact Assessment (HIA) is defined by the World Health Organization as a practical approach used to judge the potential health effects of a policy, programme or project on a population, particularly on vulnerable or disadvantaged groups. With this Collection, Archives of Public Health aims to advance the use, dissemination and methodological rigour of HIA studies. The Collection in particular welcomes studies evaluating primary prevention policies, and studies focussing on the integration of health inequities/inequalities in the HIA framework. We welcome both applied and methodological manuscripts.
This Collection supports and amplifies research directly related to SDG3 - Good Health and Wellbeing, and also SDG1 - No Poverty, SDG6 - Clean Water and Sanitation, SDG10 - Reduced inequalities, and SDG11 - Sustainable Cities and Communities.
