Advancing HIA during the Finnish EU Presidency

I came across an interesting interview with Pekka Puska, head of the Finnish National Public Health Unit about the "health in all policies" goal they're working towards during the Finnish EU Presidency.

Tapani Kauppinen and Kirsi Nelimarkka (pictured with their poster on human impact assessment) mentioned at the IAIA Conference that STAKES is also going to be undertaking work to progress HIA at the policy level during the presidency.

It will be interesting to see how things progress.
