Health in All Policies

Florida Department of Health - Hillsborough County

Health in All Policies is “a collaborative approach to improving the health of all people by incorporating health considerations into decision-making across sectors and policy areas.”—Public Health Institute: An Introduction to Health in All Policies: A Guide for State and Local Governments

The Office of Health Equity is developing a Health in All Policies strategy to engage city, county and community-based agencies in including health in their policy and funding decision making. This strategy is inclusive of health equity and social justice concepts, and aligns with our mission to address the “social determinants of health through policy, system and environmental changes.” In addition, Health in All Policies is supported by our Health Impact Assessment work, which can be used to identify possible positive or negative health impact of non-health sector policies.

To explore becoming a partner in Health in All Policies or receive staff training on conducting Health Impact Assessments, please contact the Office of Health Equity.
