National HIA Meeting 2013: Plenary Panel – Evaluation of Health Impact Assessments: Early Results from Four HIA Evaluation Studies


Few studies have systematically evaluated HIAs to understand what they are accomplishing, and what factors may be associated with success. This session presents early results from four separate HIA evaluation studies, including three conducted in the United States and one conducted in Australia and New Zealand. Speakers will offer insights into topics, including the value and impact of conducting HIAs, factors that contribute to success, and opportunities to strengthen the practice.
