Description:

Published in the Bulletin of the WHO, December 2009 This evidence review guide paper describes the formulation, development and testing of a simple guide to reviewing evidence for use in HIA. Health impact assessment (HIA) has been proposed as one mechanism that can inform decision-making by public policy-makers. However, HIA methodology has been criticized for a lack of rigour in its use of evidence. The aim of this work was to formulate, develop and test a practical guide to reviewing publicly available evidence for use in HIA. The term evidence includes all scientific assessments, whether research studies in peer-reviewed journals or previous HIAs.
