Health in All Policies (HiAP) Rural Based Curriculum Development and Community Implementation Trainings

Project #: 4WA009
Start Date: 10/01/2022
End Date: 09/30/2023
Status: Current

Benefits: Collaboratively addressing the social determinates of health across a wide number of sectors and increasing the number of “non-health” organizations and policy makers who use the Health in All Policies (HiAP) curriculum will improve American health outcomes overall.


The goal of this project is to work with the Public Health Institute (PHI) and local partners to identify existing HiAP curricula and adapt them to address the equity, diversity, funding, and policy of small urban and rural communities in Montana. The updated curriculum will consist of educational materials, planning and community health guides, as well as all the materials to successfully deliver HiAP trainings in a rural setting. The project team will then implement the HiAP curriculum through planning, outreach, marketing, and trainings within regional audiences. Performance metrics and process and outcome evaluations will be utilized to provide immediate updates to program delivery as well as recommendations for future evidence-based work. Results will be summarized in a final report, which will include recommendations for dissemination to other local, regional, and state governments and community leaders. A journal article and conference presentations will also be prepared.
