How are Health Impact Assessments changing policy? (and some story ideas for journalists with an interest in health…)

Do journalists spend too much time and effort covering the health and medical industry, and not enough covering the health consequences of broader policies?

It’s a question that springs to mind in light of an increasing use of health impact assessments (HIAs), a tool used to assess the likely health effects of policies, whether in transport, finance, education, health or other areas.

HIAs were on the agenda of the American Public Health Association conference in Denver this week, which was told how they had been used to improve policies in a range of areas, including planning of a freeway extension.

Dr Aaron Wernham, director of the Health Impact Project, a collaboration between the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Pew Charitable Trusts, gave several examples of policy changes that resulted from HIA projects in the US. These included passage of a living wage ordinance, increased funding for energy assistance for low-income residents, and increased availability of permanently rent-controlled housing for vulnerable populations.

Another speaker told of an HIA on a proposed housing project in Los Angeles that made recommendations for ensuring maximum health benefits and avoiding unintended negative impacts on health. These included suggesting that housing units needed to be affordable to low-income residents; built with an emphasis on larger units for bigger families; and asking the developer to set aside space for a grocery store selling healthy food.

What do we know about how HIAs are being used in our part of the world?

Ben Harris-Roxas, a Research Fellow at the Centre for Health Equity Training, Research and Evaluation at the University of New South Wales, is part of a group of researchers hoping to answer exactly this question (and his list below gives plenty of potential story ideas for journalists interested in taking a broader approach to health reporting).

Ben Harris-Roxas writes:

Do you know of any health impact assessments that have been conducted in Australia or New Zealand? We need your help!

Health impact assessment (HIA) has emerged over the past 15 years as a decision support tool that examines the health impacts of policies, programs and projects before implementation, and recommends changes to implementation.  HIA is now being widely used across Australia and New Zealand, and globally.

Despite this rapid growth and widespread use, there are still gaps in our knowledge about the effectiveness of HIA.

The UNSW Research Centre for Primary Health Care and Equity, Flinders University, Monash University, Curtin University and the University of Otago, have been funded by the Australian Research Council to study HIA’s effectiveness. The study is about how HIA changes decision-making and implementation, or not.

As part of this we’re  looking for HIAs conducted in Australia or New Zealand between 2005-2009 that have reports available.

I’ve included a list of HIAs we have identified so far below, sorted by state and year.

Do you know of any others? If you do, please email:  b.harris-roxasATunsw.edu.au

The list shows that there’s been quite a diverse range of HIAs, ranging from land-use planning to climate change adaptation.

Though this study is focused on HIAs, rather than environmental impact assessments (EIAs), we’re still interested in interested in any EIAs that have discrete health sections.

In many EIA reports health is integrated throughout, but if there’s any that you think have had substantive health component, we’d certainly be interested in taking a look at them. The issue of how health is considered within EIA is of course an important one, and we’re currently developing separate research proposals that address this issue specifically.

Thank you all for your help.
