Health Impact Assessment: Its role in regeneration

11th September 2009.

How can the health of people living in deprived communities be influenced by programmes, policies, or projects, which actively seek to regenerate those communities? How can such activities be amended so that people affected can experience more positive health impacts, and fewer negative health impacts? This Local Work seeks to explain the valuable role that HIA, as a methodology, can play in promoting the health benefits of regeneration activities.
