Through our leadership of the Florida HIA Consortium, FIHI is building a statewide HIA infrastructure to promote and enable increased knowledge and practice of Health Impact Assessments (HIAs). Planning efforts included our contribution to the Florida: Health Impact Assessment Final Report, a 2012 scan of Florida’s previous HIA practices prepared by the University of Florida Department of Urban & Regional Planning Center for Health and the Built Environment and presented to the Florida Department of Health Office of Health Statistics and Assessment.

This report compared the HIA processes that Florida had used to date with best practices described by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
