Health in All Policies: Lessons Learned from California
September 6, 2012
11:00 AM to 12:00 PM Pacific Daylight Time

The environments in which people live, work, study, and play impact health in significant and lasting ways. Policy and program decisions made by "non-health" government agencies play a significant role in shaping community environments. Health in All Policies is a collaborative approach to improve health by incorporating health considerations into decision making across all policy areas.
California's Health in All Policies Task Force is the first state-level, United States effort to institutionalize this approach. Established in 2010, the Task Force has identified and is implementing a set of recommendations that engage state agencies in collaborative efforts to achieve healthier and more sustainable communities. Recommendations relate to community qualities such as healthy food, transportation, community safety, housing and indoor spaces, and urban greening and places to be active. The Task Force also has recommendations related to embedding health considerations in government structures and the policy-making process.
Co-sponsored by the American Public Health Association and The California Endowment, this 60-minute Web Forum will provide an overview of the Health in All Policies approach and how this approach can help communities achieve public health and other important priorities. The Web Forum will provide an introduction to the work of California's Health in All Policies Task Force, including its history and accomplishments, and a discussion of the lessons learned from this innovative approach.
