Public Health actors are more and more frequently asked to play a role in influencing public policies. However, despite a good deal of practical know-how, many are not trained in the policy field and may not necessarily have the theoretical tools that would allow them to navigate the world of public policy even more effectively.

This workshop outlined the most commonly used and accepted theoretical frameworks in political science and to presenting them in a form that can be usefully linked to practices. François Benoit began by defining certain terms used in the field of healthy public policy and then presented several concepts and theories of policy analysis. The objective was to elaborate these tools for public health actors. The presentation concluded with several concrete examples of how theoretical frameworks can be used to understand the development and implementation of healthy public policies.
