In November 2016, the NCCHPP conducted an interview with Carmel Williams, Manager of the Health Determinants and Policy team at the South Australia Department for Health and Ageing.

Ms. Williams was in Québec to participate in the Journées annuelles de santé publique (JASP - Québec's Annual Public Health Days).

This interview is presented in two clips in which Ms. Williams presents the various dimensions of the Health in All Policies approach.

Health in All Policies (HiAP) is a strategy to address the underlying causes of health and well-being. It is principally about trying to influence the policy approaches and decisions of other government agencies that have the levers and controls to actually influence health and well-being at the population level.
