The NCCHPP and the Partenariats et expertises transversales (partnerships and cross-cutting expertises) unit of the Institut national de santé publique du Québec (INSPQ) organized a seminar on the evaluation of health impact assessments (HIAs).
December 2019. Description.

This seminar, which was held on October 15, 2019 in the Montréal offices of the INSPQ and by videoconference in the Institut's Québec offices, drew together participants working in the fields of public policy, evaluation more broadly and the evaluation of HIAs, more specifically.
