Event Details

TOGETHER NORTH JERSEY plans to host a day-long workshop to introduce the concept of HIAPs and train participants in approaches to HIAP, leaving them with the tools they need to undertake a HIAP approach in “non-health” decision-making. 

HIAP is an approach to policy development that builds consideration of public health impacts into decision-making in “non-health” policy areas such as transportation, housing, environment, energy and economic development.   The choices made by “non-health” decision-makers, whether at the state or local level or whether in the public or private sector, have tangible impacts on the public health of citizens. HIAP convenes diverse partners from various policy areas to consider how their decisions influence health and what opportunities are available to adjust decision-making to yield positive health outcomes.

This workshop will be developed in partnership with state and federal agencies and others.  The workshop will serve as an important educational and training opportunity for local public health officers in New Jersey.  Additionally, the workshop will serve to assist with building capacity into the TOGETHER NORTH JERSEY deliberative process to foster consideration of health impacts into development of the Regional Plan for Sustainable Development.

The audience for this workshop is expected to include participants of the standing committees that are part of the TOGETHER NORTH JERSEY initiative, local public health officers in New Jersey and other interested individuals and organizations.

The focus of the workshop will be on

  • Educating participants on the concepts of HIAP and the value in taking a HIAP approach;
  • Inspiring participants to adopt a HIAP approach by better understanding the value of HIAP;
  • Empowering participants to recognize HIAP as an approach that is attainable by providing them with examples and case studies of successful HIAP efforts in areas such as housing, land use, transportation, energy, etc.;
  • Building capacity to apply tangible HIAP approaches in their day-to-day decision-making.

The workshop will be held on March 18, 2013.  Click here to download full agenda.
