Fort McPherson Rapid Health Impact Assessment: Zoning for Health Benefit to Surrounding Communities

Description:

The Georgia Health Policy Center's "Fort McPherson Rapid Health Impact Assessment: Zoning for Health Benefit to Surrounding Communities During Interim Use" provides a health in all policies (HiAP) case study.

The Georgia Health Policy Center describes its process and results in conducting a Health Impact Assessment on interim use of a closed Army installation as part of the Department of Defense's Base Realignment and Closure program using a HiAP perspective.

For communities that are looking to redevelop government land, the Fort McPherson Rapid Health Impact Assessment process provides a possible route for those jurisdictions that are looking to utilize a redevelopment opportunity to promote a health in all policies approach.
