We are pleased to invite you to join a worldwide association of HIA practitioners! SOPHIA aims to provide leadership and promote excellence in the practice of health impact assessment, and is guided by five core values-- democracy, equity, sustainability, ethical use of evidence, and comprehensive approach to health.
By promoting and practicing a thorough and systematic consideration of health in decision-making, SOPHIA will help achieve better health for all.
We would like to invite all HIA practitioners, whether experienced or novice, from any geographic region or country, and those with a broader interest in HIA, to become members.
For a comprehensive list of the benefits available to SOPHIA members, please visit our Membership Benefits page.
During registration, SOPHIA members will sign a statement pledging that you will conduct HIAs in a manner that aligns with SOPHIAʼs Mission, Vision and Core Values.
