HiAP Preparedness Guide

The Health In All Policies Preparedness (HiAP) Guide provides a framework to taking a HIAP approach to public health preparedness to improve the depth and effectiveness of collaboration at all stages of response. It is organized using the four phases of the disaster management cycle. Each section begins with a description of the disaster cycle activities that take place and the partners that may provide support during each phase. 

The guide provides:   

  • An introduction to HiAP 
  • Examples of how to implement the framework 
  • How preparedness activities map to the Health in All Policies (HiAP) framework 
  • How one or more HiAP tools can be applied in each phase
  • Worksheets for every stage of the response

While disasters have large-scale impacts on community health, safety, and wellbeing, they can also be inflection points to examine policies and practices, develop and deepen partnerships, engage the community around public health issues, and collect and use public health data to forge a healthier community.
