Summary A recently published paper which describes the status of health impact assessment (HIA) in Australia in 2003 provides a vantage point from which to see how rapidly HIA is developing across the country. When the report Health impact assessment: a tool for policy development in Australia was released in 2002 there was little use of HIA beyond environmental management applications. By late 2005, most states and territories are undertaking a variety of HIA activities either routinely or experimentally. Traditional divisions between environmental project-level applications that focus on health protection and public health policy-level applications that focus on health promotion, are largely disappearing. These are being replaced by a growing understanding of the need for complementarity in approach and cross-sectoral working. This is not to say that there are high levels of activity, but both awareness and action are increasing.
