This brief, 25-page bonus chapter explores intersectoral approaches to enabling better health. Designed to supplement Global Health 101, 3rd edition, the chapter takes a holistic view of the factors that determine health and the range of measures across agencies that are needed to ensure better health.

The author explores the value of health impact assessments and how they are conducted.

Students will gain a clear understanding of how to speak about a “health in all perspective” for government policymaking as well as the most important policy measures that countries can take to address health through intersectoral approaches. The chapter includes a vignette, figures, key terms, and references.
