Health Impact Quantification

2010 Scientific expert workshop: Quantifying the health impacts of policies – Principles, methods, and models. Düsseldorf, 16-17 March 2010. LIGA.Fokus 11 and Suppl.

2011 International composite workshop 13. April 2011, preceding the 11th HIA International Conference in Granada (Andalusia), 14.-15. April 2011. This workshop, held in coordination with the World Health Organization (WHO), was organized by:

  • NRW Institute of Health and Work (LIGA.NRW) / WHO Collaborating Center on Regional Health Policy and Public Health (Bielefeld)
  • Erasmus Medical Center (EMC) University of Rotterdam
  • Institute of Ocupational Medicine (IOM, Edinburgh).

In the morning, there were two parallel workshops on Health Impact quantification toolkits: (i) DYNAMO HIA hands on training, EMC Rotterdam, (ii) INTARESE / HEIMTSA toolbox, IOM Edinburgh. In the afternoon, there was a joint workshop: Status and perspectives.
