Equity Impact Review
The Equity Impact Review (EIR) Guide (PDF) is designed to help public health staff find ways to reduce any negative effects of proposed policies, programs, or projects. The guide will help users:
- Identify ways proposed policies or programs may need to be modified to ensure they will reduce health disparities - not make them worse
- Better understand the uneven impacts of our decisions on various populations or communities
- Make program and policy recommendations that promote equity and ease adverse impacts
