Integrating equity into the impact assessment process is challenging because equity is a difficult concept to define, not mutually agreed across Member States (MS), with different meanings in different cultures. The Equity Action Joint Action has started to develop skills and capacity for Health Impact Assessment (HIA) across Europe, with a particular focus on assessing equity. If an HIA is undertaken well, it can have a significant impact on policy and health inequalities. This report is based on the evaluation and reflection reports from Ben Cave Associates, feedback from MS participants, their case studies and learning from peer to peer presentations.
The report addresses two areas
- learning from conducting the Health Impact Assessment with an Equity Focus and
- learning from delivering the training itself.
