HIA Step by Step - A new online course by the NCCHPP

Health Impact Assessment (HIA) is used to inform decision makers about the potential effects of a project, program or policy on the health of a population. HIA of public policies applies to any project, program or policy for which the decision maker is a governmental authority, either at the local, regional, provincial or federal level.
The NCCHPP will offer a new online continuing education course on HIA of public policies starting this fall.

This course will allow you to become familiar with the HIA process as applied to public policies, recognize its foundations, and reflect on the favorable conditions for successful HIA implementation.

  • in French from October 15 to November 1st 2013 
  • in English from October 21 to November 8, 2013
Registration deadline: October 7, 2013. Places are limited.
