The Community-Driven Health Impact Assessment certificate program will be held from June 4 to June 15, 2012 at the Coady International Institute.
Promoting community well-being requires an understanding of the interaction of the social determinants of health, the inequities in health status and the ability to take action. Community-driven health impact assessment (CHIA) is a way to bring forward the concerns of the community in discussions of public policy. CHIA is based on the idea that broad citizen involvement is essential for the development of healthy public policy. This course will introduce you to a holistic understanding of health within the context of development. It examines the relationship between health and development and the impact of development programs and policies on the well-being of communities.
It is suggested that applications be submitted by mid-February 2012.
