In the last several decades, hundreds of communities worldwide have benefited from Health Impact Assessments (HIAs). As the sole membership association for HIA practitioners, SOPHIA now has several hundred members worldwide.
While we have accomplished much since our inception in 2010, we are at a critical point in our organizational development. Our services continue to grow, and additional resources are needed to maintain and improve member services, training and technical assistance, and engage and support volunteers.
SOPHIA is seeking organizations that can bring ideas to the discussion, as well as contribute time and financial support to the continued development of SOPHIA. Most importantly, we are seeking organizations that are committed to the use of HIA to create healthier communities.
SOPHIA’s vision is to be the premier organization for HIA practitioners worldwide. We currently offer mentoring services, a library of model HIA reports, a quarterly newsletter and a new website, in addition to resources created by our workgroups. We have recently entered into a partnership with Indiana University to produce the first HIA scholarly journal, the Chronicles of Health Impact Assessment.
There are many ways you can join us. If you would like to provide financial support to SOPHIA and become a sponsor, there are several different sponsorship levels and benefits.
