Comment évaluer les effets des évaluations d'impact sur la santé : le potentiel de l'analyse de contribution

Health impact assessments (HIA) allow the potential impact of nonhealth-related actions (policy, project, program) on health to be analyzed. For example, municipal projects, for urban renewal or urban planning, have an impact on health drivers relating to the created environment, and thus, on public health. In the province of Quebec, the government and affiliated organizations have to comment on potential impacts; they use HIAs to ensure health is factored into public actions.
