About

IIFHI is an international institute focused on health promotion.

We believe that promoting healthy behaviours and disease prevention, presenting modern treatment methods, and improving the organization and operation of health systems are imperatives to improve the quality of health care.

International Institute for Health Impact follows the attitude of the science and art of preventing disease, prolonging life and improving quality of life through organized efforts and informed choices of society, organizations, public and private, communities and individuals. Analyzing the determinants of well-being of a population and the dangers it faces is the premise for International Institute for Health Impact.

International Institute for Health Impact underpins instruments and activities in the health impact appraisal to powerfully move forward well-being of people.

The concept of health takes into account physical, psychological, and social well-being. As such, according to the World Health Organization, it is not merely the absence of disease or infirmity and more recently, a resource for every day living.

Financial segments such as pharmaceutical and food industry, architecture and housing or maintaining a clean environment have significant impacts on well-being.

Climate change affects each and every human around the globe, with profound and potentially lasting implications for global health.

Health Impact appraisal may be a implies of surveying the well-being impacts of activities, plans and ventures in different financial segments utilizing quantitative, subjective and participatory techniques.

Health Impact appraisal gives predispositions to decision-makers to better make choices and changes to avoid disease/injury and to effectively advance well-being.
