Health Impact Assessment (HIA) Workshop

On April 18, 2013, the NCCHPP brought together more than 20 representatives from Canadian provinces and territories to share their knowledge and experiences regarding the implementation of HIA strategies. This meeting also allowed participants to discuss the conditions for success, barriers and strategies envisaged by the various jurisdictions to integrate health in all policies.

A report from this meeting will be published in the next few months. We will let you know in this bulletin when it is available.
