The Health Impact Project and the Society of Practitioners of Health Impact Assessment (SOPHIA) are hosting two opportunities directly following the Association for Public Policy Analysis and Management (APPAM) Annual International Conference.
Lessons from Around the Globe Convening
The Health Impact Project, a collaboration of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and The Pew Charitable Trusts, will convene international experts to discuss incorporating health considerations in policy decisions across multiple sectors, such as housing, transportation, and education. Plenary and breakout sessions will focus on Health in All Policies (HiAP) models, best practices, and lessons learned, as well as emerging ideas for cross-sector collaboration to advance population health from around the world.
An Introduction to Health Impact Assessment Training
Health Impact Assessment (HIA) is an adaptable approach that can successfully bring new and valuable perspectives into existing decision-making structures, with the goal of identifying and addressing potential effects of policies on population health where they would otherwise not be considered. This training will include a broad introduction to the HIA process, interactive exploration of critical concepts through real-world examples, and an emphasis on selecting suitable policy decisions to examine through an HIA approach. Join experts from the field to learn the basics of this proven approach to integrating health and equity considerations into ongoing policy formation.
