  • April 03, 2012


This panel will build on the morning Plenary Sessions and highlight the practical aspects of implementing HIAs in a range of policy settings. Each case example will address: what information the HIA added that was not already available through other studies under way, what else was valuable about the HIA, the interaction between the HIA team and the decision maker, the outcomes of the HIA and reflections on the practical challenges of working within this policy context.
