Bias, T.K. & Abildso, C.G. (2017). Measuring Policy and Related Effects of a Health Impact Assessment Related to Connectivity. Prev Med. 95(Suppl), S92-S94.
Health Impact Assessments are an important tool to help policymakers perceive the potential positive and negative contributions of decisions to public health. While they have been increasingly used in the United States, studies have not examined intermediate effects.

Further, it reflects on the measurement of these effects as part of the monitoring and evaluation stage of the Health Impact Assessment process.
