Summary

The Whānau Ora Health Impact Assessment tool is a formal approach used to predict the potential health effects of a policy on Māori and their whānau. It pays particular attention to Māori involvement in the policy development process and articulates the role of the wider health determinants in influencing health and well-being outcomes.

The Whānau Ora Health Impact Assessment tool is strongly based on the Public Health Advisory Committee’s Health Impact Assessment Guide, and builds on its strengths by combining and adapting the techniques and checklists used in the Public Health Advisory Committee’s Health Impact Assessment Guide.

This tool is intended for use by policy makers from the health sector, including the Ministry of Health, District Health Boards, and other sectors such as local government, education and social development.
