Evaluating your HEIA

Why evaluate HEIA?

Evaluate your Health Equity Impact Assessment to see:

  • how the HEIA tool informed your decision-making process
  • whether it led to less health disparities between population groups, and if so
  • how well it improved health equity. 

A HEIA evaluation also helps build knowledge in your organization that can support and improve future use of the tool.

HEIA evaluation template

The CAMH Health Equity Office has drafted a HEIA evaluation template. The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care has approved this template for piloting. Try it on an evaluation of your HEIA. 

HEIA evaluation backgrounder

The HEIA evaluation backgrounder walks you through why you should evaluate your HEIA, how to evaluate it, and the types of HEIA evaluations available to you.

Literature review on evaluation of Health Impact Assessment

This literature review, completed in 2014, summarizes the existing literature on the evaluation of Health Impact Assessment. It was used to help inform the development of the HEIA evaluation template, found above.
