Online Course: Introduction to Health Impact Assessment of Public Policies - Recent Developments
.

In partnership with Dr. Richard Massé, the Institut national de santé publique du Québec, and the University of Montréal, the NCCHPP recently announced the online course in HIA of public policies. There has been a significant response, and given the interest that has been shown, we would like to highlight 3 recent developments.

First, we are proud to announce that the French version of the course will start on February 4th with a full complement of participants. The registration deadline for the English version of the course is March 8, 2013. For more information, click here.

Second, we are developing an alternative version of the online course that will be available in October 2013 and which will allow more people to take part in an online training in HIA. To find out more, visit our Q and A page.

Third, we would like to keep people informed about the online course in HIA of public policies. If you would like to join an email list for updates, sign up by clicking here (check the box for "HIA Online Course").
