The impact and effectiveness of health impact assessment: A conceptual framework


Many of you will have heard me present about the conceptual framework we developed for evaluating the impact and effectiveness of HIA over the past few years. The good news is our paper on it has been published:

Harris-Roxas B, Harris E (2012) The Impact and Effectiveness of Health Impact Assessment: A conceptual framework, Environmental Impact Assessment Review:accepted, in press. doi:10.1016/j.eiar.2012.09.003

It's the first empirically-derived conceptual framework for evaluating HIA that I'm aware of and may also be useful for planning and reporting on HIAs. It emphasises context, process and impacts as key domains and attempts to identify the broad range of factors that influence the effectiveness of HIAs.
