HiAP 2018 A Strategy for Improving Population Health 6th of February 2018 - RSM, London Health in All Policies (HiAP) is an approach to policies that systematically and explicitly takes into account the health implications of the decisions we make; targets the key social determinants of health; looks for synergies between health and other core objectives and the work we do with partners; and tries to prevent causing harm with the aim of improving the health of the population and reducing inequity. This conference will ensure that attendees are informed about the health, equity, and sustainability consequences of various policy options during their policy development process, allowing them to improve the health of all people by incorporating health considerations into decision-making across sectors and policy areas.

Delegates will engage a range of partners from government and local government and stakeholders with an aim to work together to improve health and health equity and, at the same time, advance other goals, such as educational attainment, improved housing and green spaces, environmental sustainability, promoting job creation and economic stability.
