Where we are in the six stage process

1. Screening – Complete

Determine whether an HIA would add value to the decision-making process.

2. Scoping – Complete

Establish the team responsible for conducting the HIA and define roles. Determine which potential health impacts to evaluate, methods for analysis, and a work plan.

Develop a stakeholder engagement plan.

3. Assessment – Current Phase

Provide a profile of existing baseline health conditions and vulnerabilities.

Evaluate potential health impacts, including direction, severity, magnitude, and likelihood.

4. Recommendations

Strategies to manage identified adverse health impacts, including mitigation and/or prevention of negative impacts as well as enhancement of health benefits and prioritization of recommendations.

5. Reporting

Develop the HIA report.

Communicate the findings and recommendations to public and stakeholders through publishing in a widely-available format.

6. Monitoring and Evaluation:

Impacts on decision-making processes and the final decision.

Impacts of the decision on health determinants and outcomes.
