Strengthening the implementation of health impact assessment in Latvia



This report synthesizes existing knowledge on internationally recognized HIA methods and approaches, how HIA has been implemented in other European countries, along with practical advice on how HIA can be implemented using the existing expertise and institutional arrangements in Latvia. The report is an output of ongoing collaboration between the Latvian Ministry of Health, the WHO Country Office of Latvia, and the WHO European Centre for Environment and Health. It complements a growing base of literature on how HIA can be implemented in new European Union countries, and should be read in conjunction with them.
