Human Impact Partners (HIP)

Human Impact Partners (HIP) Human Impact Partners transforms the field of public health to center equity and builds collective power with social justice movements. One way to elevate the role of health in decision-making is the practice of Health Impact Assessment (HIA), which HIP conducts and trains others to do.

HIA, performed in several countries around the world, is commonly defined as “a combination of procedures, methods, and tools by which a policy, plan, or project may be judged as to its potential effects on the health of a population, and the distribution of those effects within the population.” Health Impact Assessments are a practical tool that can provide a structured process to determine a pol

Shifting the Framework for Public Health

Last week, we released a Federal Policy Platform w/ public health policy solutions that communities most impacted by inequities are naming and building. And to support and advance these policies, we need to leverage bold narratives about what #publichealth is, does, and *can* do.

📌Read a companion post from HIP Co-Director Solange Gould on how transformative public health narratives can shift the framework on public health to drive material and systemic change: https://humanimpact-hip.medium.com/shifting-the-framework-for-public-health-5c1c0433837b?source=friends_link&sk=328023d8b42c266ba56cdd6cd531dc3d

General information

Working in direct partnership with communities, public health and other agencies and academic experts, Human Impact Partners helps pinpoint tailored strategies to bring diverse stakeholders to the table, navigate the practical steps of conducting HIAs and determine how to understand and use their results so that the health needs of the community are met. Through training and mentorship we also build the capacity of impacted communities and their advocates, workers, public agencies, and elected officials to conduct HIA and use results to take action. Human Impact Partners has conducted HIAs on the local, state and federal levels – with experience in communities across the country, from California to Maine. Our HIA findings have been integrated into policy-making and projects to help advance health equity, and we have trained state and local government agencies and community-based organizations around the country to conduct HIAs in their own communities. When policymakers, project planners, community organizations and advocacy groups participate in and have data provided by a HIA, policy decisions and new projects are better informed and have the opportunity to provide the best outcomes for our communities, especially those facing health inequities.
