Health in All Policies is an approach to public policies across sectors that systematically takes into account the health implications of decisions, seeks synergies, and avoids harmful health impacts in order to improve population health and health equity. Health in All Policies (HiAP) is based on the recognition that our greatest health challenges—for example, noncommunicable diseases, health inequities and inequalities, climate change, and spiraling health care costs—are highly complex and often linked through the social determinants of health.

The purpose of this manual is to provide a resource for training to increase understanding of HiAP by health and other professionals. It is anticipated that the material in this manual will form the basis of two- or three-day workshops, which will: Build capacity to promote, implement and evaluate HiAP; Encourage engagement and collaboration across sectors; Facilitate the exchange of experiences and lessons learned; Promote regional and global collaboration on HiAP; and Promote dissemination of skills to develop training courses for trainers.
