Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care
HEIA is a decision support tool which walks users through the steps of identifying how a program, policy or similar initiative will impact population groups in different ways. HEIA surfaces unintended potential impacts. The end goal is to maximize positive impacts and reduce negative impacts that could potentially widen health disparities between population groups—in short, more equitable delivery of the program, service, policy etc. Effective use of HEIA is dependent on good evidence. The tool includes a workbook and templates, as well as two supplements: one that outlines special considerations for Public Health, and a French Language Services (FLS) Supplement for MOHLTC and LHIN staff.
