Description:

Equity-focused health impact assessment (EFHIA) uses the health impact assessment process (Harris et al. 2007) to firstly determine the potential differential and distributional impacts of a policy, program or project on the health of the population as well as specific groups within that population; and secondly, to assesses whether the differential impacts are remediable and unfair (Mahoney et al. 2004). The equity dimension of EFHIA is about assessing whether identified differential health impacts are inequitable - the result of factors that are remediable and unfair, i.e. they are potentially preventable impacts (Harris-Roxas et al. 2004). The minimum criteria for differential impacts that should be considered includes: - age; - gender; - socioeconomic position; - culture and ethnicity, including indigneous communities; - locational disadvantage, incorporating considerations of proximity, neighbourhood characteristsics and rurality; - existing levels of health and disability.
