Traduction en anglais : Health impact assessment : a central task of the public health service.
Health impact assessment (HIA) is defined in this paper as the adequate coverage of health aspects within the context of environmental impact assessment.
HIA is a typical task for the public health service.
A project on HIA undertaken by the Northe Rhine-Westphalian Research Compound for Public Health found out that presently the opportunity to use HIA for preventive health puposes is still largely neglected.
However, in a survey local health departements expressed great interest in receiving HIA-training.
A workable concept and supporting tools are both necessary prerequisites for the practice of HIA becoming routine.
This paper presents a ten step HIA-conceptl.
Supporting tools are presently under development and testing.
