The International HIA 2011 Conference in Granada, Spain, organized by the Spanish Association of Health Impact Assessment in collaboration with the Andalusian School of Public Health, aimed to address the new challenges that HIA faces in the context of the current economic crisis and explore the new opportunities for development that this context might offer. It was addressed to public health professionals; other professionals working in environmental areas and at local level; researchers, academics and trainees interested in HIA; policy makers and decision makers; and representatives of civil society and key European institutions.

The NCCHPP's Anika Mendell presented a conceptual framework to better understand how HIA leads decision makers to take health into account, and under which conditions. This framework will be used to document an HIA project in Québec and to evaluate knowledge use among the decision makers in the context of this HIA.

The PowerPoint presentation prepared by Anika Mendell and Louise St-Pierre is now available.
