Support Public Policy
Public policy plays a central role in creating healthier communities. Policies can be a tool for financing cost-effective public health strategies, maximizing health benefits from certain programs, improving service systems, and influencing healthier behaviors.
IPHI supports the development and implementation of effective public health policy. The team advocates for public policy that makes clear sense based on science and community interests for health and well-being. IPHI focuses on promoting “health in all policies,” or an integrated and comprehensive approach to ensuring that public policy across sectors, including those not traditionally viewed as health sectors, is developed and implemented with deliberate consideration for the potential positive and negative consequences to health and health equity.
