Health in all Policies

The NHS 2018-2022 aims to ensure that health is a prime consideration in government decisions, in order to ensure for a healthier, more sustainable future.

What is Health in All Policies?

Health in All Policies (HiAP) is an inter-sectoral collaborative approach to improving the health and equity for all populations by incorporating health considerations and implications into all decision-making processes.

The main focus of HiAP is to identify policy measures that provide a "win-win" or "co-benefits" situation that help to achieve not only improved health outcomes, but also the desired outcomes of other sectors, such as education, social protection, and environment. As such, HiAP aims to achieve four key elements: promoting health and equity, supporting inter-sectoral collaboration, creating co-benefits for multiple partners, and creating structural or process change.

Why is it a priority?

The Health in All Policies approach helps to address the social, physical, and economic environments that are the key drivers of health outcomes and health inequities. Through collaboration across sectors, HiAP can help identify areas of duplication between agencies and encourage discussions on how best to share resources and reduce redundancies. Therefore, cost-effective interventions and policies centered on promoting healthy behaviour and prevention can be developed.

What is our target by 2022?

By the end of 2018, Qatar will develop and begin the implementation of a National Health in All Policies strategy and plan of action, with the goal of embracing the Healthy Cities Approach, in view of supporting readiness for the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
