Health Equity Impact Assessments (HEIAs) should be conducted prior ti implementing new policy, programming, or initiatives.
McMaster’s Offord Centre for Child Studies evaluated two group-based parenting programs to access health equity of caregivers to young children.
Conducting a HEIA:
- A review of the published literature and unpublished agency documents.
- Interviews with the agency and community members.
- A synthesis of findings.
- An evaluation of the impact of strategies.
