Abstract

The NSW Health and Equity Statement recommended
that processes be developed for undertaking both rapid
health impact appraisals and comprehensive health impact
assessments (HIAs) of new government policy initiatives.
The goal was to develop a range of standardised approaches
that could be used to assess proposed initiatives for their
potential to redress health inequities.
