WHAT WE DO
HIA is a process that identifies how a project, policy or program might influence the health of a population, in both beneficial and adverse ways. Habitat is an internationally-recognized leader in the HIA field and we have been active in pushing for high standards for HIA worldwide.
We provide hospitals with CHNAs and implementation plans that help them meet their obligations under the Affordable Care Act, and also provide them with the information needed to make smart choices with limited resources.
Stakeholder engagement is an integral component of any Health Impact Assessment and is a keystone for other decision-making processes that require understanding of multiple stakeholder perspectives.
Habitat brings a wealth of experience to the analysis of health in Arctic communities. We are proud of our on-the-ground understanding of the needs and nuances of northern populations, governments and employers.
Habitat is in the process of developing a proprietary modelling system to help communities identify the extent to which their populations are vulnerable to climate change events such as heat waves, floods, fires or hurricanes.
