    Collaborating for Health: Health in All Policies and the Law.Dawn Pepin, Benjamin D. Winig, Derek Carr & Peter D. Jacobson - 2017 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 45 (s1):60-64.
    This article introduces and defines the Health in All Policies concept and examines existing state legislation, with a focus on California. The article starts with an overview of HiAP and then analyzes the status of HiAP legislation, specifically addressing variations across states. Finally, the article describes California's HiAP approach and discusses how communities can apply a HiAP framework not only to improve health outcomes and advance health equity, but also to counteract existing laws and policies that contribute to health inequities.
