Online Course Health Impact Assessment, step by step

Health Impact Assessment (HIA) is a structured and innovative process for prospectively assessing the potential impacts of a project, program or policy on the health and well-being of populations. In order to support capacity building in the field of HIA, the National Collaborating Centre for Healthy Public Policy (NCCHPP) has developed an online course on HIA. This 5-hour course is available free of charge in English and French and can be accessed at any time upon registration. It aims to familiarize participants with the process of conducting health impact assessments of projects, programs, and policies in collaboration with relevant stakeholders.

How can the HIA online course help you?

HIA enables public health professionals to work intersectorally and to develop practical solutions that minimize risks and maximize health benefits of public policy decisions made outside of the health sector before their implementation. It will help them influence and assist the decision-making process. This HIA online course will enable you to:

  • Develop your HIA skills
  • Participate in an HIA process
  • Better inform policy makers
  • Improve population health.

About this webinar

In this webinar, we started by presenting the HIA process as a tool for promoting the adoption of healthy public policies. We also introduced the NCCHPP's online course on HIA as a tool to support HIA capacity building. We then passed the microphone to a health professional who has been involved in an HIA process. She spoke about her HIA experience on HIA's challenges and benefits, as well as her experience with the NCCHPP's online course.

At the end of this webinar, the participants were able to:

  • Understand the HIA process as a tool to support public sector decision making
  • Learn more about the HIA online course
  • Learn how to use the HIA skills developed during the training to conduct an HIA of projects, programs, and policies.
