Councillor workbook: Health in All Policies and COVID-19

The workbook is designed to prompt reflection, insight and to identify actions to improve practice and support your work in adapting your approach to population health and the council’s public health resource in the context of COVID-19.


The format will encourage you to consider your role as you work through key issues, case studies and exercises; to reflect on how the material relates to your own approach, your local situation, the officers you work with, the people you serve and the council you represent.

In practical terms, the workbook can be used as a standalone learning tool but additional information and links are provided. You need not complete it all in one session and you may prefer to work at your own pace. If you are ‘dipping into’ the workbook, the contents page provides a good guide to allow you to find the right section and sub-section. In working through the material you will encounter a number of features designed to help you think about your role in the COVID-19 response.

Health in All Policies (HiAP) is an approach to working across health determinants to impact on health inequalities and improve wellbeing. It draws on the HiAP approach advocated by the World Health Organization and the European Union. The Marmot review also highlighted the importance of building health equity into the approach.
