Health Impact Assessment and policy development

Monica O’Mullane

Manchester University Press

This chapter includes the findings from using the conceptual lens, as outlined in chapter 2, across the four HIAs explored in the book, regarding the influencing factors on the use of HIA knowledge for policy development, and the extent of use of such knowledge in policies. A discussion of the qualitative longitudinal study is provided. A number of findings regarding the practice of HIA is outlined, as well as a number of suggestions for advancing HIA and associated approaches in both jurisdictions. The chapter concludes acknowledging that for the HIAs explored in the book, they provided “a space for practical reasoning to navigate facts, values and processes underlying the substantive and procedural dimensions of policy” (Harris et al. 2014: 1).
