We are pleased to invite you to join a worldwide association of HIA and HiAP practitioners! SOPHIA aims to provide leadership and promote excellence in the practice of health impact assessment and the field of health in all policies 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.
All HIA and HiAP practitioners, any experience level, from any geographic region or country, and those with a broader interest in HIA and HiAP frameworks are invited to become members.
