lnternational Health lmpact Assessment Workshop 2014
A. Date : April 29-30, 2014
B. Venue : Korea Institute for Health and Social Affairs, Seoul, Korea
C. Background

With the tool of Health Impact Assessment we can prevent diseases and injuries in a community and country by providing recommendation for healthy public policy in development projects, programs and policies. While many countries have exerted efforts to implement HIA in the region, there exist some challenges in the practice of HIA. We need more evidence for the HIA practice in the region, because many sources of evidence have come from the Western countries. Capacity building and training are another important issue in the region. We need technical support and investment for HIA as well.

D. Aim of the Conference

Aim of the workshop is to provide an opportunity for sharing knowledge with regard to evidence based HIA practices, and to promote capacity building of HIA implementation in the Southeast and East Asian countries.
