The scientific committee is launching a call for oral and poster presentations for the 12th International Conference on Health Impact Assessment (HIA).
For its first time in North America, the 2012 HIA International Conference will take place in Québec City from August 29 to 31, 2012. The Conference seeks on one hand to advance HIA practice in light of new knowledge, and on the other to prove its relevance, and to stimulate its use in various decision-making contexts. It is open to everyone whose decisions and actions may have an impact on health.
The Conference will be structured around four major thematic tracks:
- HIA in the policy-making process
- Institutionalization of HIA: Addressing political and administrative issues.
- Diversity of practices: Developing a common thread, maintaining flexibility.
- Evaluation, research, and ethics: Advancing HIA practice.
The deadline to submit a proposal for presentations is February 29, 2012. To submit a proposal, visit the Call for Abstracts page of the Conference Web site
