The STEP-HIA is conducted through the University of New Mexico Prevention Research Center in partnership with the Step Into Cuba Alliance. The STEP-HIA aims to look at how trail access from Cuba, NM to the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail (CDT) is linked to health, quality of life, and community, social, and economic capital for residents living in the community. The overall objective of the HIA is to utilize primary and secondary data to formulate recommendations about potential trail and trailhead features and locations in relation to the CDT to inform public land planners. The STEP-HIA is one of many efforts to increase health equity in Cuba.
