Health in All Policies (HiAP)

HiAP is an approach/policy strategy that puts health-related rights and obligations at the centre of policy making. As health is influenced by social, environmental and economic factors, it is important to integrate health considerations into a broader range of related policy areas and at all levels of governance. The HiAP concept was first introduced under the 2006 Finnish EU Presidency. The EU Treaty obliges all EU policies to adhere to the HiAP approach. The approach was later adopted by the WHO.
