Implementing Equity in Health in All Policies & Health Impact Assessments: From Concept to Action

  • June 19, 2013
  • 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM
  • Webinar
Growing evidence demonstrates that social and economic factors have significant influence over health outcomes. Because of this, interest in considering health in decision-making processes related to social and economic decisions has been growing over the last decade, and tools like Health Impact Assessments (HIA) and compelling approaches such as Health in All Policies (HiAP) are being explored and implemented by many. And the interest is growing.

Compelling evidence also demonstrates the startling and immense health inequities our society faces today and continues to perpetuate. As a result, the consideration of equity within HIA and HiAP is vital to achieving equitable health outcomes, and ensuring health inequities are not perpetuated through new practices.

This webinar will focus specifically on why equity is critical to HiAP and HIA, and specific strategies to implement and ensure equity. The speakers will discuss principles and frameworks for the inclusion of equity, as well as present examples of the principles in practice. There will be opportunity for audience Q & A, as well as discussion.
