From August 29 to 31, we had the pleasure of welcoming to Quebec the 12th International Conference on Health Impact Assessment (HIA), the first time for this event to be held on the North American continent.
The Conference brought together 375 experts, policy makers and practitioners from 42 different countries to share their knowledge and experiences pertaining to the practice of HIA and taking health issues into account in all policies. The Conference took a variety of forms, including 2 preconference workshops, 6 plenary sessions, nearly 40 concurrent sessions, over 400 mentions on social media, and innumerable rich encounters.
The slides from the Conference presentations that we have been given authorization to disseminate are available online on the page containing the Conference program. The video recordings of the plenary sessions will be posted online in October.
See you soon in Geneva for the 13th International Conference on HIA from October 2 to 4, 2013!
