In this discussion paper, the authors define the
health in all policies concept, explain the need for health in all
policies approaches to confront complex and current health challenges in
the population, and provide an overview of California’s pioneering
experience with cross-sector collaboration to address the social
determinants of health. The paper includes an analysis of key challenges
and opportunities likely to arise when communities undertake health in
all policies efforts.
This paper has been developed in part to
inform participants at the September 19, 2013, workshop of the IOM
Roundtable on Population Health Improvement, Applying a Health Lens to Decision Making in Non-Health Sectors.
