National HIA Meeting 2013: General Session – Health in All Policies and HIA

OVERVIEW

The significance of target policies and indicators is becoming apparent in the institutionalization of HIA/HiAP. Presenters will discuss the role that targets and indicators play in health‐guided policy decisions, the advantages and drawbacks of using them, use of indicators in generalizing and comparing across communities, and the logistics of developing a common set of indicators. This session will focus on several instances in which stakeholders from multiple sectors were convened to identify priority data sources, leading indicators, and model practices.
