New HIA Case Study - practical guidance on how to undertake a Health Impact Assessment

The Institute of Public Health (IPH) has launched a new hypothetical case study providing practical guidance on how to undertake a Health Impact Assessment (HIA).

‘Mellow Village: A Health Impact Assessment Case Study’ sets out in detail the process and steps required to apply HIA to a hypothetical proposal to develop a mixed-use urban neighbourhood called Mellow Village. The case study is accompanied by a set of slides to demonstrate how decisions were made as well as links to the relevant section in the updated Health Impact Assessment Guidance.

The case study will be of interest to local authorities, community organisations, and policy- and decision-makers at local and national level. 

The Mellow Village case study also complements a free online course introducing the basic principles of HIA, which is available on the Institute’s digital learning platform Public Health Matters

The Mellow Village HIA Case Study is available at the top of this page.

The ‘Introduction to HIA’ learning module is available on IPH’s Public Health Matters platform
