How to Advance Equity through Health Impact Assessments

The conceptual framework and tools in this resource emphasize building community power through the practice of HIA as a key process for advancing equity. Building community power is the process by which communities gain control over the factors that shape their lives, including access to information and opportunity, decision-makers, and policy-making. A true balance of power implies more than the participation of communities, but rather community ownership of processes, planning, and actions that seek to change the determinants of health equity.
