Health Economic Assessment Tool by the World Health Organisation

Posted On Tuesday, 26 August 2014

The World Health Organisation has released a new updated tool that helps make an economic assessment of the health benefits of walking or cycling; the Health Economic Assessment Tool (HEAT), which can be used when planning new infrastructure for cyclists or pedestrians, and provides valuable information for related economic and health impact assessments.

The tool can also help make the case for more investment in cycling and walking facilities by estimating the benefits of achieving national targets or illustrating potential consequences of declines in current levels of cycling or walking. HEAT can also assess a city’s current situation or past investment related to cycling and walking.
