HIA: the German perspective
The basic idea of health impact assessment (HIA) as a task for public health professionals and for the public health service in Germany was introduced in the late 1980s. Since then, the idea was pursued both within as well as independent from existing impact assessment procedures in the environment sector. By now, it is widely held that impact assessment is a key instrument to link science and decision making, offering unique opportunities for the protection and promotion of human health. This chapter summarizes key lines of HIA development in Germany, highlighting some topics of the current debate.
