Health Impact Assessment is a policy-support instrument and approach that seeks to assess the health impacts of projects, programmes and policies on population health. The ultimate goal of HIA is to systematically predict health impacts and subsequently inform the intersectoral decision- and policy-making processes of these impacts. Integrating Health Impact Assessment with the Policy Process examines how the process of integrating HIA with policy can take place. Introductory chapters outline the HIA process and provide a conceptual foundation for the book. Then, drawing from experiences of HIA practice and research globally, country specific experiences are presented to examine HIA's relationship with the policy process. Throughout the book checklists and learning points are provided to assist the readers' understanding of the concepts and examples discussed. This practical and conceptually-grounded guide represents a convergence of theory and practice from the disciplines of public health, environmental health and the social sciences, and will appeal to practitioners and professionals in these fields, as well as policy-makers, decision-makers, planners at regional and national government levels as well as academics, educators and students.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This is the first book of its kind to share global experiences of how Health Impact Assessment can be integrated into policy processes. . . The book is easy to read and can be dipped into for relevant chapters as independent pieces. . . A whole range of professionals would find this book interesting. * Rebecca Bailey-McHale, lecturer, Faculty of Health and Social Care, University of Chester; Nursing Times *
This book takes a unique approach to public policy, using as a framework for policy work the health impact assessment, which the editor believes shape policy globally... There are many public policy books, but none that use an integrated approach to public health using the HIA model. * Doody's Notes, July 2013 *
This is the first book of its kind to share global experiences of how Health Impact Assessment can be integrated into policy processes... The book is easy to read and can be dipped into for relevant chapters as independent pieces without needing to read the whole book in entirety... While this book may be viewed as a bit heavy going, its use of real life studies, health impact assessments and their application, actually make it a really quite interesting read. * Nursing Times *
