Webinar - How and Why Evaluate the Implementation of a Health Impact Assessment Process (HIA)?
This webinar will discuss the evaluation of an HIA process. Please note that it will be offered in French only.
September 2019. Description. Registration

This webinar entitled: Comment et pourquoi évaluer le déploiement d'une démarche d'évaluation d'impact sur la santé (EIS)? will be offered by Françoise Jabot, Professor at the École des Hautes Études en Santé Publique (EHESP), in Rennes, France.

Health Impact Assessment (HIA) is a prospective process aimed at estimating the consequences of a policy, a program or a project on the health of a population. The objective of HIA is to better inform decision makers and to encourage the adoption of healthy public policies.

HIA is structured in a five-step process. This webinar will discuss the last step of the HIA process, evaluation, which is often neglected due to a lack of time and/or resources. Based on an example completed in France, this webinar will present an approach to evaluating the implementation of an HIA process and the lessons that can be drawn from it.
