There are many HIA frameworks available. Some of the frameworks have a specific focus on health equity (e.g. HIIA and the frameworks by the ACHEIA and CHETRE, table 2). Within Europe, a special HIA for European policy has been developed (the EHPHIA). The choice for one of the available frameworks depends mainly on the personal preferences and the training of the team carrying out the HIA. Table 10 lists a few of the more widely used HIA frameworks. All of the listed frameworks are publicly available via the internet and were free to download at the time of writing.
