 Health in All Policies Ordinance Adopted!
The City of Richmond continues its leadership in working towards health equity exemplified by the recent adoption of a Health in All Polices (HiAP) strategy and ordinance by the Richmond City Council.  

The City of Richmond recognizes that health equity is an issue that stretches far beyond the doctor’s office. Health in All Policies (HiAP), or “healthy public policy,” is based on the idea that health starts with where people live, work, learn, and play and that community health is influenced by more than just individual choices. One’s physical and social environment and local government decisions that shape these environments, all play a role in influencing human health. 

View the Health in All Policies Press Release available for immediate release. 

To learn more about HiAP and view the ordinance and Strategy document, please visit our Health in All Policies webpage.
