PHI’s HiAP team built the California Health in All Policies (HiAP) Task force from the ground up, partnering with twenty-two state agencies and working in collaboration with the California Department of Public Health to promote healthy and equitable communities. It is the most extensive HiAP initiative within a state government anywhere in the country. 

Our Health in All Policies guide has been viewed 60,000 times and downloaded over 30,000 times. It is used as a primer by local, state, federal and international organizations seeking to institute a HiAP approach where they live. As the guide notes, 

Health in All Policies is based on the recognition that our greatest health challenges—for example, chronic illness, health inequities, climate change, and spiraling health care costs—are highly complex and often linked. Promoting healthy communities requires that we address the social determinants of health, such as transportation, education, access to healthy food, economic opportunities, and more. This requires innovative solutions, a new policy paradigm, and structures that break down the siloed nature of government to advance collaboration.
