Subject(s):Health Impact Assessment
Transportation policy
Geographic Coverage:Champaign-Urbana, IL
Abstract:While public health has always been a part of planning narratives, in recent years there has been an emerging trend to formalize public health considerations in planning processes. Health Impact Assessment (HIA) is a tool which can be used to integrate community health considerations into urban planning processes and policies. It can be used as a framework to inform decision-making and to compare policies or scenarios. The proposed HIA was conducted as part of the Long Range Transportation Plan for Champaign-Urbana urbanized area. The primary objective of this assessment was to analyze and predict public health impact of transportation and land-use policies which are collectively referred to as the built-environment.
