Role Of Three Federal Departments In Influencing Health

While the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has a substantial responsibility in advancing the health of the nation, other federal departments and agencies also can have a significant impact on disease prevention and health promotion. Health in All Policies (HiAP) is a strategy that considers the factors that influence health across all levels of policymaking to improve health outcomes. A report from the Bipartisan Policy Center explores how the U.S. Department of Education (ED), U.S. Department of Treasury (Treasury), and U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) currently implement a HiAP approach and how these departments can build on these efforts.
