Florida: Health Impact Assessment (HIA), Final Report, June 2012
HIA, a valuable public health tool, is a systematic process that uses a combination of methods, tools, and data sources, including input from stakeholders to ensure that health impacts are considered in plans, policies, programs, and projects. One HIA, the North Florida Power HIA, has been completed in Florida, and another on Kings Ridge Apartments, is being conducted in Jacksonville.
This report analyzes and compares the HIA process that Florida has used with best practices described by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and focuses the following objectives: identify how HIA is used nationally and internationally; identify methods of performing HIAs that would be most successful in Florida; identify how HIAs performed in Florida compare to national HIAs; and recommend priority areas currently affecting public health for which the HIA tool could be applied.
